Description

Eucalyptus trees are fast growing trees. They can reach a height of 30-55 m. 

 

This fast growing tree is widely grown as a plantation species in Australia and other subtropical climates. Plantation-grown wood tends to be lighter and softer, while forest-grown Blue Gum is harder and denser. The wood is mainly used for pulp and fuel, although some is also harvested for woodworking. Blue gum is generally considered to be a utility wood.

 

The heartwood of Eucalyptus has a yellow-brown colour. Its sapwood has a grey/white colour and is quite narrow. Stains may also be present in the structure of the wood. 

 

Applications : Utility wood, pallets, paper (pulpwood), fence posts, flooring, veneer and turned objects.
