Characteristic and wood color

Sapwood and heartwood sharply separated. The sapwood is almost white and narrow in forest trees - about 2.5 cm -, but in free standing - up to 8 cm.- The heartwood shades from light brown, slightly purple to deep dark brown, in forest trees deep chocolate, silky shine. Fork branches and root pieces are nicely wavy and grained. Pores large, clear, evenly distributed. Fibre and colour deviations are frequent.
