The sapwood is light grey and 3-5 cm wide. The wood is light to medium hard; the sapwood is narrow and grey. The pores are medium-sized to rough, scattered, often single and without innerfilling. The direction of grain is slightly contorted. The wood is pressure-resistant, elastic not very thick, good to handle, but difficult to split, and thereby fairly resistant. For the most part only slight and irregular alternating spiral occur. Growth layers on cross-section by darker summerwood and on rotary cut veneers often visible as broad and proceeded flat.
