The sapwood is creamy white with a slight reddish brown tinge and the heartwood varies from light to dark reddish-brown. The amount of darker brown heartwood can vary significantly according to growing region. Both sapwood and heartwood can contain pith fleck. The wood has a close, fine, uniform texture and is generally straight-grained, but it can also occur as "curly", "fiddleback", and "birds-eye" figure.
