CITES and delivery times

Protection for trees can mean longer delivery times

CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) has recently extended its coverage to some species of Dalbergia wood. This affects recorders made from Palisander, rosewood and grenadilla. These recorders are still available, but need to be certified as from sustainable plantations before they are exported from Europe. This means that they generally take 2-3 weeks longer to arrive in New Zealand. Where we have current stock, there is no delay.
