Tropical Forest Products announced that its premium Black Label brand of

Ipe and other tropical hardwoods has partnered with Dakota Premium Hardwoods.

Dakota Premium Hardwoods is a distributor of high-quality lumber, engineered products and full job packages such as supports and fasteners. Dakota operates locations in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma and is headquartered in Waco, Texas.

Under terms of the agreement, Dakota will distribute the full line of Black Label’s sustainable tropical hardwoods throughout their warehouse locations.

“The Black Label team is excited to continue the expansion of our distribution network in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma with Dakota Premium Hardwoods,” said Brian Lotz, technical director for Tropical Forest Products. “Dakota’s impressive green initiatives, unsurpassed customer service, hardwood expertise and supply chain mastery are essential to the Black Label brand as we grow our distribution footprint.”

Black Label said that it is dedicated to offering 100% legally harvested sustainable tropical hardwoods from South America. Every tree that produces Black Label products is carefully selected based on the forest’s age, size, and productive wellbeing.

The line includes Ipe, Cumaru, Jatoba, Garapa, BulletWood, and Tigerwood, with commercial and residential applications ranging from decking, cladding, and ceilings to architectural millwork.

“The Dakota partnership with the Black Label brand perfectly aligns with our commitment to offering beauty, sustainability, and value across our growing platform,” said Ron Mazzarella, CEO of Dakota Premium Hardwoods.

Tropical Forest Products first launched the premium Black Label brand of curated, certified sustainable collection of tropical hardwoods in April.
