General Description

The sapwood is whitish to a yellowish-brown. The heartwood varies from a pale brown to a chocolate brown in color, and can even have a purple tint. It is common of the wood to be steamed during the kiln drying process, this darkens the sapwood to make it more of a uniform color with the heartwood. The grain is slightly open, but usually straight, with a semi-coarse but uniform texture.
