The trees which produce this light-colored Southeast Asian softwood are better known for their sap being tapped and used in the production of latex. The wood is popular with carvers who know of it, as its lack of density makes it very easy to work, the wood has excellent dimensional stability and it holds a stain or finish very well. Any applications should be limited to those of the indoor variety, as the wood is decidedly non-durable.

Its generally straight (though occasionally interlocked) grains, fine to medium-fine, consistent texture and nice natural luster render exceptional working and finishing properties.

Sustainability: This species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, and is reported by the IUCN as being a species of least concern.

Common Uses: Latex production, patternmaking, carving, utility and small specialty wood items.

Comments: Before chewing gum manufacturers went the synthetic route, the latex derived from the Dyera Costulata trees’ sap kept the species in steady demand. In the SE Asian region to which it is indigenous, the wood is used in much the same fashion as Basswood.

Trees can grow to towering heights, so sizable boards are not uncommon. (… although finding available lumber in the US is uncommon.)
