Indian Rosewood, or Sheesham wood as it is more commonly known, is a deciduous rosewood tree that is native to the Indian Sub-continent and Southern Iran. Primarily found growing around river banks at below 3, 000 feet of elevation, they can sometimes be found growing naturally at up to 4,300 feet of elevation. It is highly resistant to dry wood termites, making it decay-resistant; Sheesham wood is also a dense wood and is extremely durable.
