Pterocarpus macrocarpus, Gum-Kino Tree, Burma Padauk, Mai Pradoo, Pradu

Click to see full-size image Pterocarpus macrocarpus
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Gum-Kino Tree, Burma Padauk, Mai Pradoo, Pradu
Origin: Burma and Thailand
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersFragrantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Large vigorous tree with dense foliage providing good shade. Fast growing and very ornamental. Fragrant yellow flowers turn to attractive large brownish seeds. It grows to 80 feet high and yields a bright yellow red to dark brick red heartwood, often streaked with darker color. This tree is higly valued for its beautiful wood. It is not a species that sells in volume. It is an accent wood. The color varies log by log, but Burma padauk is generally more orange in color and African and Andaman padauk generally have more vibrant red orange colors. Like other padauks, it has a spicy odor when cut. Burma padauk can be hard to saw if the wood is dry and difficult to use with hand tools because of its interlocked grain and coarse texture. Traditional Thai music instruments (harps) are made out of wood of this wood. A valued furniture and cabinet wood, decorative veneers, novelty items, turning and interior trim. One of the landscape favorites of South East Asia.
