I spent about a month in Veracruz Mexico last year. I visited a sawmill, and could not help myself, in purchasing some large pieces of Ziricote, and Chechen. They had a stack of Ziricote there, 20' long 8' wide and 5' tall. I called it "Mount Ziricote". Needless to say, I was under the "spell", and bought some very nice timbers of exotic wood, not really thinking how I was going to get it back into the states. It was so cheap, I couldn't help it. So I left the wood with a friend, and told him I would get in touch with him about how I was going to ship it to the states. It's probably 4 boards about 5' long and 2" thick, 5" wide. The owner of the mill said all I needed was a sheet of paper for import. If this is the case, I'd like to find more about getting this "paper", and possibly have my wood shipped to me. Does anyone know anything about importing wood from Mexico legally, and what do you think I should do. I understand, one of my options is probably to just forget it, and have my friend build a pallet out of it or something........ouch!!! Thank you for reading this. I want my wood.
