Rubberwood is a by-product of rubber plantation trees that is tapped for its latex. Tapping of rubber trees starts in the fifth to seventh year after planting and then continues for 25 to 30 years. It is done by incising the bark with a special knife and wounding the resin canals. After 30 years, a decline in latex production makes further tapping of the trees uneconomical. The trees are then removed and replaced with new seedlings.
