Although it is difficult to imagine, there are more than 1,300 acacia species on this planet. There is no other tree on this earth that is revered as much by representatives of different ethnic groups and cultures. Acacia began to be cultivated in Europe in the early 18th century due to its medicinal properties, fragrant flowers and wood with a very pleasant smell that lingers in items made from it. Acacia wood is very durable and hard. It is used in furniture, parquet and finishing materials.
