GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The sapwood is light yellow to yellow-brown and well defined. Heartwood is orange-brown or brown weathering to dark brown.

Grain is deeply interlocked.

Texture is moderately coarse to coarse and even.

Vessels are with simple perforations, medium-sized or moderately large, few or very rarely moderately few in number; solitary vessels and vessels in group fairly well balanced, radial groups composed of two to five pores; fairly evenly scattered with occasionally a faint suggestion of local arrangement in short tangential lines. Tyloses are usually present but not abundant; chalky white deposits are often present.

Wood parenchyma is exclusively paratracheal, often conspicuously surrounding the pores as vasicentric, aliform or confluent (mostly aliform); the colour of wood parenchyma is typically orange-brown.

 

Rays are of two sizes, the medium-sized rays clearly visible to the naked eye, the finer ones are not; colour of the rays is typically orange-brown. 
 

USES

Suitable for beams, posts, joists, rafters, door and window frames, staircases, furniture, decorative work, parquet flooring, panelling, joinery, cabinet-making, boat construction and wooden mathematical instruments; also the favourite wood for expensive hewn coffins among the Chinese community in Malaysia.
