Texture is moderately fine and even.

Vessels are small to medium-sized, few to numerous, solitary and in radial multiples of two to five, with a tendency towards tangential arrangement.

Wood parenchyma is abundant and paratracheal, vasicentric and usually confluent, the lines formed appearing somewhat like apotracheal concentric bands.

Rays are fine to moderately fine, not distinct but visible to the naked eye.
