Transition wood

Groynes in coastal engineering (CIRIA C793), published by CIRIA in 2020, state that intermediate wood or transition wood is: ‘Found in a few species of tropical hardwood and sandwiched between the sapwood and heartwood. Transition wood is not as durable as heartwood, and its presence may be a contributory factor to the apparent failure/erosion of timber components.’
