This picture was taken in the year 2000 at a seedling nursery in Espirito Santo, Brazil. To my right is the Pernambuco tree seedlings, and to my left is the Coffee plant. The Pernambuco is the national tree of Brazil that is now an endangered species, with efforts underway to restore its prominence. It's strength, resiliance and sound quality make it the wood of choice for fine bows.
