Characteristics of Boxelder
Grain is straight with a fine, even texture. Faintly contrasted colors of pale-white, sometimes yellow/green hues, light-brown, and red and gray flames are possible. Much of the reddish coloring becomes a more subdued pink or brown/gray upon drying. The red stain is produced by the tree’s natural defenses when wounded—it is thought that the compound is meant to inhibit the growth of fungus that commonly colonizes the tree.
