Texture fine and uniform. Grain usually straight, occasionally interlocked. Boles 15-18m long, straight, cylindrical and unbuttressed

Characteristics

Timber is exceptionally hard, heavy, strong and tough. Moderately hard to machine because of its high density but cuts cleanly without dulling of cutting edges. Turning must be done slowly to avoid tearing. Takes a high polish. Pre-boring is necessary for nails and screws. Very resistant to fungal and termite attached but liable to attack by marine borers. Extremely resistant to moisture absorption. High resistance to wear
