Wood properties:
When fresh, the heartwood is russet brown, orange brown, or reddish brown to red with narrow to wide irregular stripes of medium to very dark  brown. After exposure it becomes brown, red, or dark reddish brown with nearly black  stripes. The dingy grayish or brownish-white sapwood, 2 to 4 in. wide, is sharply demarcated. Grain variable, straight to roey; texture fine to medium, uniform; no distinctive odor or taste. The wood often has a striking figure caused by irregular dark longitudinal bands;
The logs are typically sound throughout, it is not difficult to work in spite of its high density, finishes very smoothly, and takes a high polish. The wood weathers well and is highly resistant to moisture absorption;
Its density:0.79-0.90g/cm3;
Laboratory tests indicate the heartwood to be very durable in resistance to both white-rot and brown-rot organisms.  These results substantiate the reputed  high durability of this species.
