It does not need to be treated chemically, for is naturally resistent to rot, termites and boring beetles. it is known throughout Papua New Guinea and is called 'Kwila' in Tok Pisin. it is so heavy that when village people would tow it by canoe into the sawmills (e.g. at Sidea Island), they would have to lash it to two logs of less dense timbre in order to float it through the sea. It may take 6 or men to carry a larger Kwila housepost. Slit gongs also called "Kundu drums" are also made of this very heavy timbre.

They worked intensively in the area from 1981 thru early 1990's, and were based at Gamadoudou.
