Old Belian Buddha
Belian, the Ironman tree.
> Locally known as Belian, Borneo's ironwood is the heaviest, hardest and most valuable timber of Borneo.
> Belian can live over 1000 years and it grows extremely slow, reaching only a diameter of 30 cm even after 120 years.
> It is so hard and dense that it doesn't float on water and termites can't bite through.
> Now only a small number of Belian trees live in most remote forest of Borneo.
>Belian is so strong and resistant to decay that it can last 200 years in worst condition, so it's the best wood for jetty, dock and piling.
