The heartwood is red to purple-red-brown or dark brown; it is not sharply differentiated from the sapwood. The grain is straight; the texture moderately fine and even. The wood is heavy, hard, fairly strong. It is fairly durable when exposed to the weather or in contact with the ground but not resistant to pinhole borer attack. It works easily. It is used locally for posts etc in traditional house building as well as for furniture, paddles, fences, and implements such as rice pounders and carrying poles[
