Is a  low-to medium-density softwood that looks and works like kauri. Macrocarpa, when dry, will accept a variety of paints, oils, two pot resins and varnishes. The timber cannot be pressure treated with copper, chromium and arsenic (CCA), but sapwood can be boron diffusion treated to resist insects (but not decay). The heartwood is golden brown and has a speckled lustre, which is rare in timber.
