Pricing/Availability:Not regularly available in North America, availability is likely to be limited to its natural range in Europe, where prices should be moderate.
Sustainability:This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but is on the IUCN Red List. It is listed as vulnerable due to a population size estimated to number fewer than 10,000 mature trees and a continuing decline of mature trees, with no subpopulation estimated to contain more than 1,000 mature trees. (This IUCN assessment is only for the native populations found in the Balkan Peninsula, and does not take into account cultivated trees that are found worldwide.)
Common Uses:Veneer, furniture, plywood, interior trim, and turned objects.
