Known for its aromatic scent, it comes in a uniform reddish-brown color. It is preferred for linen cabinets because of its resistance to insects, particularly moths. It is easy to work with and can be made into small wooden specialty items, fence posts, closet and chest linings, and outdoor furniture.
