What exactly is Hapa-Wood composite? I would like to purchase or carve a small 12-20 inch tiki for terrarium decor and am wondering if the stuff is rot proof and non-toxic?

thanks for any info,

Coco Joes first introduced Hapa Wood to the world:

"Hapa-wood...a partial wood product combining the beauty of natural wood with the long lasting qualities of modern technology..."

"Hapawood looks like, feels like, and approximates the weight of various Hawaiian woods."

Hapa wood is actually plastic.

Buzzy Out!

A composite is usually a plastic material so it should last a life time.
