Bishop's Wood is a medium to large tropical tree that can get quite thick at the trunk. It is an incredibly fast growing tree and does well in a wide range of situations.

Trees grow to a good size in landscape and gardens after about 8 years, creating a good shade canopy and filling in spots. For small wood production and charcoal, harvesting after 8-10 years is achieved. The tree over time tends to develop bumps, twists and branching and is thus not normally used for sawn timber due to the lack of straight grain.
