Plane tree is a hybrid tree often planted in towns and cities. The wood is hard, with a close grain and is light brown in colour. There are numerous medullary rays of medium size that are very conspicuous and decorative on quarter cut surfaces. Boards showing this figure are known as Lacewood.
From 2nd January 2017 if you wish to export articles that are partly or fully made from newly listed species of Rosewood, Padauk and Bubinga then the export will need to be accompanied by a CITES re-export permit. It is possible that the importer/customer of the article may need to apply for a CITES import permit from their own authorities and this should be investigated before the export happens.
