I thought that I remembered reading a list of many of the different types of wood available in Belize, beyond pine, for building but could not locate it to show a friend who is interested in Belize and does outstandingly creative and high quality work. (an artist builder)

If anyone could give info on types of wood and any average price ranges I would appreciate it. And I do apologize if this is a repeat question, I looked back a year in the forum question files.
Thank you
