On this particular species the new bark is green and the older dark turns orange, red and maroon as it ages. Native to the southern parts of the Pacific Ocean it grows wild in the Philippines, and is known as a Mindanao tree. It is also grown in plantations to be used as pulp wood for the manufacture of paper. Useful and beautiful, this is a unique tree, at least to me.
