Moabi

Moabi trees grow in subtropical or tropical lowland evergreen forests. Shooting up from the rainforest canopy, the moabi’s parasol-like crown stands out clearly in the forest landscape, in part due to its very notable, very large, size.

Moabi heartwood is most often a uniform pinkish brown. This color tends to darken with age, with some more rare examples displaying a deep reddish brown hue. The sapwood is grayish brown with little variation. The wood's grain is most often straight to wavy, with a fine, even texture, though figured grain patterns are also seen, such as pommele, quilted, mottled, and beeswing.
