Family

Celastraceae

BOTANICAL NAME

Kokoona spp.

DISTRIBUTION

Found in low-lying land and hills.

  

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The sapwood is lighter in colour and merges gradually into the heartwood, which is whitish to yellowish brown.

Grain is interlocked.

Texture is fine but uneven due to the thick bands of parenchyma. Timber is diffused porous with small to moderately small vessels having simple perforations. Vessels, although exclusively solitary, have a tendency to arrange into groups.

Wood parenchyma is present in abundant quantities as broad conspicuous terminal bands which are often anastomosing or ending abruptly. These characteristic broad bands are conspicuous on all surfaces.

Rays are very fine, not visible to the naked eye.

 

USES

Suitable for heavy construction, posts, beams, joists, bridges, parquet flooring, door and window frames and heavy-duty furniture.
