More and more buildings in Dhaka and other cities now have wooden fencing instead of brick wall. Until recently imported expensive woods were used in fencing. Black palm wood has become a suitable alternative to imported wood in fencing work.
The shrinkage and warping percentage of black palm is much low compared to other woods. Black palm wood is exceptionally durable in wet climatic condition, lasting for decades due to its high level of water resistance property. No borers or termite can damage this wood. It is also highly resistant against fungal decay. The spectacular grain pattern of black palm wood is really attractive.
