Durability and Treatment:
The cedro-amazonense wood presents moderate durability to the attack of rotting fungi and termites. A study carried out verified that the durability of this wood is less than 12 years of service in contact with the soil. Difficult to treat heartwood and sapwood with water-soluble preservatives, even under pressure treatment.
