It belongs to the Fabaceae family. It is an evergreen tree about 10 meters tall, reaching 30 meters in optimal conditions and a diameter of up to 2 and a half meters. The stem is rounded with dark brown bark, which cracks, and can be peeled off in flakes. It is found at low altitudes, below 900 meters, in southeastern China, Taiwan and Vietnam, where due to overexploitation it is threatened with extinction. The leaves are bipinnate and slightly pointed. The top layer is dark green, while the lower layer is lighter with obvious veins. Teak Lim produces small white flowers that open in March-April. The fruit is an elongated pod that can grow up to 30 cm, containing 6-12 hard, black seeds. The fruits ripen in December-January and are brown or grayish-black in color.

Its high-quality wood has fine grain, it's hard, strong, durable, weatherproof, and rarely warps or cracks. It is often in demand for floorboards and construction.
