General Description

Sapwood is not differentiated from the heartwood, which is a bright yellow when fresh, often with a green tinge and darkening to light brown on exposure. Grain is spiral, shallowly interlocked or slightly wavy. Texture is rather coarse and even. Vessels are moderately large in size with simple perforations. They are few in number, few as solitary, predominantly in radial pairs and multiples of 2 to 7 in a series and occasional clusters; in radial arrangement. Wood parenchyma, as regularly spaced apotracheal bands, are visible to the naked eye on the cross section but not prominent on the radial surface. Rays are fine but visible to the naked eye on the cross-section.
