Tawa is a very strong high density timber that has always been regarded as a speciality timber.



Dry heartwood is a light creamy brown. The outer wood is uniformly white throughout and of higher strength. The contrast between white and brown colouration can be used to good effect. The grain is very straight with fine texture.



Tawa is an excellent flooring, furniture, and finishing timber. Its strength properties make it suitable for handles and rods, and it is very good for turnery across the grain thus has long had a reputation in New Zealand as a utility and joinery timber.
