Abstract
Muninga is a medium-sized tree, rarely more than 50 feet high, of which often more than half is taken up by the crown which, when grown in open conditions, is large and spreading in width equal to or greater than the total height. The bole is usually straight and upright, rarely over 25 feet in length and 30 inches in diameter at breast height. Young stems often tend to be slightly wavy, a feature which may disappear in later life. The root system consists of a strong tap root in the young stage, supplemented by large, spreading lateral roots in later years.
