Where it Grows
South America - Amazon basin to Ecuador, north through Colombia and Venezuela to Costa Rica. Evergreen forests formations at elevations below 400 meters.
The heartwood is a uniform yellowish white to yellowish brown or light brown with golden shades; it is not distinctly demarcated from the sapwood. The texture is medium; the grain straight to widely and shallowly interlocked; the luster high; when seasoned there is no odor or taste. The wood is of moderate weight; soft to moderately hard; not very durable, being susceptible to fungi, dry wood borers and termites. It seasons normally, with only a slight risk of checking or distortion.
The wood works well with ordinary tools, however they need to be kept sharp otherwise the interlocked grain and the tension wood which is sometimes prevalent can cause fuzzy grain and burning of saws due to pinching; it takes stains and finishes readily; takes nails and screws well; presents no gluing problems. Consistent Thickness and Grain; stable and flat for ease of working. Triple sanded to 180 grit for Face and 150 grit for Back.
It is used for purposes such as light carpentry, light construction, flooring, furniture components, plywood, particleboard, fibreboard, pulp and paper products, and mouldings.
