Anegre

Pouteria altissima
Also known as |
Aniegre|Anigre|Aninguerie
Anegre Lumber @ Rare Woods USA

Indigenous to the tropical regions of East Africa and West Africa, as far south as Angola.¬† Anegre has been used primarily as an interior wood; it is decidedly non-durable, and thus not recommended for outdoor applications. The wood’s aesthetics can vary greatly, as Anegre is comprised of three separate species within the Pouteria genus. Its colors can range from pale yellowish to orangish-brown wood, to a pale pinkish-brown, sometimes with additional highlight coloration. Anegre typically darkens to a golden-to reddish brown over time, with repeated UV ray exposure. The heartwood and sapwood of Anegre are usually not distinguishable from each other.

Anegre has a medium texture with closed pores similar to Maple.  The species is easy to work with both hand and power tools.
Examples can be quite beautiful — and sometimes stunning, with curly and mottled figuring being not uncommon. Its hues tend to be generally pastel in nature, so it makes a very complimentary, aesthetically unimposing wood for a variety of interior applications. Grains are typically straight but can occasionally be interlocked. Its texture is medium and it has a nice natural luster.

Anigre is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but some species are reported by the IUCN as being “conservation dependent.” Essentially, from the IUCN’s perspective, if any of the current conservation programs protecting these respective species were to cease it would likely result in their rendering a “vulnerable” or “endangered” Red List status.

Why We Love This Wood

Formerly classified in the genus "Aningeria," Anigre is currently placed in the Pouteria genus. Depending on specific species, Anegre has varying degrees of silica content. While possessing a moderate hardness and density, it has generally cooperative working properties, but can gum up cutters and blades.
