The hard heartwood varies in color from a glistening golden brown to a dark hue that is almost black. The Thuya wood tends to display a figure called “eyes” which are perfectly round and scattered throughout some burls, while in others they are clumped together in what appear to be islands of eyes. The figure is similar to bird’s eye maple but the overall effect is much darker and easier to discern. The wood is oily and very aromatic with an incredibly pleasing scent reminiscent of pine and black pepper.
Nearly always exported and sold as burls from the root of the tree, with plain or unfigured wood of little commercial value.
