 GUAYABI or BLACK ASH

 
Native and exotic wood, that only  grows in Argentina, superior to all  knowledge  over the world due to  relation among the flexion - compression index ,  and the length of its fibers. It was the most wanted wood for  Guarani natives. They  were naming it, Stick bow, right now, with only one branch you could manufacture bows of to 60 pounds. In 1942, Northamerican scientist of Materials Institute joing with businessmen of the same country,  accomplished the evaluation to replace it for the American Ash Tree because its properties of  flexion, hardness, compression and length of fiber were confirmedly bigger to any knownwood, but it was not possible to do because the tree didn´t grow in their  conditions of ground and climate of north hemisphere, besides his duramen and whiteness blend unlike the ash tree originating an important waste.
