Taking a closer look at a rubber tree
The cutting is most times done in the early morning. And in the raining season it can not be done at all. Rubber trees can be exploited for about 20 years. In Thailand the wood of the trees is used to make furniture. The farmers collect the rubber and make rubber mats of the raw rubber. That is sold to factories that process the rubber. The price of this rubber depends on the quality of the rubber.
