Thanks again Dennis....

My friend, luthier and Brazilian Rosewood importer Rodrigo Moreira told me that Brazilian Rosewood like this is typical of type grown in trees grown in cacao plantations to provide shade (cacao likes shade) in Bahia region on the Atlantic coast. The insect holes seen are from a well known parasite that proliferates among cacao that kills the Dalbergia nigra trees. This tree was likely felled due to the parasites.
