Birmanian Teak

Tectona Grandis L.f.

The color of the sapwood varies from whitish yellow to light grey, and the heartwood from a yellow-brown to a dark brown, becoming darker and displaying copper highlights when exposed to light. Sapwood is clearly differentiated, and in roundwood it occupies a thickness measuring from 2 to 5cm. Sometimes the wood has dark spots due to darkened areas in the parenchyma caused be climatic changes. The growth rings are quite distinct, but they range considerably from bands of two or three layers of large pores to a few scattered large pores that do not form a defined band. The texture of the grain is coarse (open).
