Formosan koa (Acacia confusa)

Formosan koa (Acacia confusa)

Common Name(s): Formosan koa

Scientific Name: Acacia confusa

Distribution: Southeast Asia and Pacific Islands

Average Dried Weight: 52.4 lbs/ft3 (840 kg/m3)

Comments: Not to be confused with the much more commercially popular and common koa (Acacia koa), found mainly on the island of Hawaii. Formosan koa is a slightly heavier and more obscure wood. The root bark of the tree is sometimes harvested and ground into a medicinal powder.
