General Description

Sapwood is moderately well defined. Heartwood is deep pink-red or red-brown. Grain is straight to shallowly interlocked and sometimes wavy. Texture is moderately fine to slightly coarse and even. Vessels are with simple perforations and medium-sized, moderately few or occasionally moderately numerous and are characteristically arranged in chain-like radial multiples of 2 to 6, but in some species solitary vessels are frequent. Tyloses are sparse in the lighter species but abundant in the heavier species. Wood parenchyma is exclusively of the apotracheal type, arranged in regularly spaced and narrow bands. Rays are very fine or fine, generally not visible to the naked eye on the cross-section.
