Vitex grows in the Solomons, also in PNG, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. Certification will depend on where it is sourced, and is something you will have to pursue with your supplier. Durability is satisfactory for above-ground locations. CSIRO places vitex in Durability Class 2-3 for in-ground use. Timber above ground generally achieves one durability class higher, which would imply a rating of 1-2.Vitex
