Description

The cambium is clear and the cortex is a clear-brown color.

Common Uses

The lumber is used for heavy construction, stakes and posts, fine carpentry, flooring, stairways, plywood sheets, paper manufacture, cabinetry and other applications.

Appearance

Heartwood is light to medium reddish brown. Paler sapwood is usually well defined. Grain is interlocked (making it very resistant to splitting). With a somewhat coarse, uneven texture.

Workability

The wood is heavy but easy to work. The grains are regular but tend to crack when the wood is dry. The lumber is dimensionally stable when dry. It is resistant to attack by insects and very durable.
