The Plum tree is cultivated in Switzerland for its fruit. It is a precious wood and especially suitable for wood turning. It has a very decorative surface with a red to violet brown color and a very fine grain. The structure of plum wood is characterised by fine stripes or flames and can turn into a very lively dark purple. A special feature is an occasional intense violet tint, which gradually fades overtime. The annual rings vary in width and are clearly visible in the wood. Plum wood is hard, firm, brittle and is known to shrink. It is also very finely-pored and has a shiny surface.
