A heavy density timber with medium bending and crushing strengths, low stiffness but very high resistance to shock loads. A relatively hard wood, Rock Elm offers moderate to severe blunting effect on cutting edges. It can be stained and polished to a good finish.


Because of its strength properties, the timber is suitable for boat building, submerged support and vehicle body work.
