The heartwood has a beige brown color with a green shade. Sometimes small black stripes or resin canals can be seen. The sapwood is easy to distinguish. The hardwood has some lustre. The grain is straight and sometimes irregular or interlocked. The texture is medium coarse.


Processing properties

Machining can be done rather easily, resulting in a smooth surface. Pre-drilling is recommended. Gluing and finishing are reported to be good. Drying goes slowly and must be done with care to avoid checking and warping. In contact with water, Tanimbuca can bleed a yellowish coloured extractive.



Tanimbuca is mainly used for garden timber like decking and fencing. In the construction sector it can be used for decking constructions.
