Due to ifs great strength and durability Ekki is ideally suited for use in marine constructions exposed to wind and weather, It has a high electrical resistance and is perhaps the most acid resistant commercial timber available.

The tree can grow to a height of 40 – 50 metres with a maximum diameter of 1.8 -2.0 metres. The trunks are usually free of branches up to 25 – 30 metres, which makes it an ideal timber for producing long lengths of large sections.
