The Deglupta has a beautifully colored, striped bark, and grows in Hawai‘i to 150 feet, with a diameter up to 3 feet. The wood is relatively light (specific gravity .45), stable, and works very easily. It has been used for cabinet work in the past, and has recently found its way into furniture and carved work. It is one of the world’s fastest growing trees, and is found in plantings of various ages in Hawai‘i forest reserves. Wood color runs through a range of pale browns to pinkish browns, often in pronounced stripes, lending furniture pieces a sense of liveliness.
