Inner blaze colour

The blaze is the surface of the cut bark. It is divided into an outer and inner layer. The two layers may be distinct, but frequently they are not. Where they are not distinct, the division is made half way through the living bark.


B28 yellow, white or cream B29 red
B30 pink

B31 brown

To be classed as brown, the blaze must be quite dark, darker than the paper commonly used in brown paper bags.

B32 mixed colours

This category applies in cases when, because of a range of colours in the blaze, it is difficult to describe the overall colour of the blaze.
