I've been searching for some US sellers for this wood, I've found a few that sell it in Europe but seem unwilling to ship to the states. Looking for some large pieces 4' and longer. Any help finding local US sellers is appreciated.

This is what it looks like http://instagr.am/p/CNepEcnnZUU/
It's called dragon wood over here. It also may or may not be a disaster. Some people report it destroying their tanks because its still got sap in it. Others have no issues.

Ok I'm going to go out on a limb here (pun intended) and assume millennial wood is dragonwood as minorhero suggests.
I really dislike mystery stuff btw..

Besides the artificial plant market it apparently is used for bird perches..

Lyonia ferruginea
, the rusty staggerbush, tree lyonia, dragon tree, is a plant of the genus Lyonia. It was first described by Thomas Walter, and was named by Thomas Nuttall.[3][4] No subspecies are listed in the Catalog of Life.[3]
Lyonia ferruginea - Wikipedia

To be honest it just might be some generic name for any twisty type wood.


Who knows..
In closing..
How did you get on with this wood? I am very interested in using it but concerned that no one seems to know what it actually is.
