Description

The trunks have a height of about 9-12 m, with a diameter at breast height of 0.3 to 0.4 m, maximum 0.7. Thus, they are small trees.

 

The color is yellowish to pinkish brown. Exposed to light, it takes on a warm hue. Often the wood is steamed, giving it an even light to dark pink color. The heart of old logs is sometimes discolored dark chocolate brown. The wood shows very little markings. A very flame pattern may appear on the slices in crowns, while a very fine stripe pattern can be seen on the slices on quarter. Pearwood is a solid, strong, tough wood.
