||Grows in United States and Canada.
||Generally straight grained with a coarse texture. Pale-brown heartwood and almost white sapwood.
||Moderately heavy, hard, strong, and tough with moderately high shock resistance, good dimensional stability, and poor decay resistance. Steam-bends very well and is quite elastic.
||Machines fairly well with machine tools although turning and mortising properties are marginal. Glues, screws, and nails satisfactorily. Stains and finishes well, although filling may be required.
