When if comes to commercial outdoor wood decking, tropical hardwood Ipe has gained notoriety as the longest lasting material of choice. While FSC certified Ipe is available, the extent to which tropical hardwoods can be sustainably harvested is debatable. Accoya wood offers an alternative derived from fast-growing pine trees. Accoya goes through a process called acetylation, a patented technology, which enables it to resist rot similar to Ipe wood. It is FSC-certified and utilizes some recycled content. It is guaranteed to last 50 years above ground and 25 years in-grade or in freshwater.
