Additional Information

While the wood is suitable for exterior use the wood should not be used where moisture contents are high due to its discoloration when in contact with iron. While the properties of nailing and crewing are both "good" pre-boring holes are recommended. This species has been placed on the endangered species list and thus international trade is restricted.
