A domestic wood grown mainly in the Eastern states. The heartwood is brown, while the sapwood is light in color or nearly white. The wood is hard, fairly strong, straight grained, and suitable for steam bending. It can be substituted for white oak in areas that will not be continually moist. Decay resistance is low. Often used for small boat framing, oars, tillers, and joiner work.
