Distribution :

Occurs mainly in the savannah forests throughout Tanzania, Zambia, Angola, Mozambique, Rhodesia and South Africa.



The Tree :

A small tree, up to 15m or slightly more, with a diameter of 0.6. It has short bole, usually less than 7.5m in length.



The Timber :

The timber resembles other species of the Pterocarpus genus (padauk from Burma, Andamans and Africa) but lacks the reddish colour of padauk, being brown with irregular reddish streaks. It is also softer and lighter in weight about 640kg/m3 when dried. The sapwood, which is rather wide, is oatmeal in colour; the grain is straight to interlock, and the texture is medium.



Uses :

Muninga is an attractive timber, suitable for paneling, high-class joinery and furniture. It makes a first-class floor with a moderate resistance to wear, and is a good timber for decorative veneer.
