Mora

Description

      Color ranges from yellowish red brown, reddish brown or dark red with paler streaks. Sapwood is 2-6 inches wide with a yellowish to pale brown color. The texture moderately fine to somewhat coarse and has a harsh feel. Luster is medium to high. The grain is straight and often interlocked. It has an astringent taste and a slightly sour odor.

      Best suited for heavy construction such as jetties and foreshore work. It is particularly suitable for sleepers, wagon bottoms, and for both traditional and Mosaic flooring along with shipbuilding. In addition it can also be used for railroad cross ties and high quality charcoal wood.
