  • Wood Description: The color varies from yellowish white to white orangish. The sapwood does not differ from the heartwood. The fiber is straight and the grain is fine. Its appearance can change due to the Agromyza carbonaria insect action. The wood’s sheet that are obtained from the trunks that have been attacked by this insect, are highly appreciated.

  • Drying: It should dry quickly since it is susceptible to be degraded by the fungi attack.
  • Uses: Turning and sculpture, furniture and high-quality carpentry.
