Doussie is an african hardwood specie. Heartwood is a reddish brown. Doussie is commonly used for furniture, cabinetry, veneer, flooring and exterior use.


The different types of Afzelia can be differentiated on account of the different coloured constituents. However, anatomically speaking there is little to differentiate them. Depending on the growing conditions, the characteristics of the wood can vary somewhat. The heartwood is dark yellow to red-brown in colour. The sapwood is pale yellow, 30-50 mm thick.
