Baloghia lucida
Bloodwood Blood"wood, n. (Bot.) A tree having the wood or the sap of the color of blood. [1913 Webster]

Note: Norfolk Island bloodwood is a euphorbiaceous tree ({Baloghia lucida}), from which the sap is collected for use as a plant. Various other trees have the name, chiefly on account of the color of the wood, as {Gordonia H[ae]matoxylon} of Jamaica, and several species of Australian {Eucalyptus}; also the true logwood ({ H[ae]matoxylon campechianum}). [1913 Webster]
