With about 800 different types, the Eucalyptus wood species from the family of the Myrtaceae is one of the most diverse and important commercial woods.


Botanical name: Eukalyptus grandis
Overall character: Depending on the individual species, method of management as well as local conditions (climate and soil), eucalyptus trees show many different degrees of density, growth and resulting timber characteristics. These factors complicate a uniform assessment of eucalyptus timber.
Color and structure: The color of the heartwood can vary from a light shade to a pinkish brown or dark red. The pores are medium sized/coarse and dispersed. They’re often diagonally radial.
Characteristics/features: Globulus wood typs of different origin do not show these characteristics. That means that their natural durability not only differs from genus to genus, but also depends on density, site and cultivation measures applied.
Areas of use: Depending on the density, natural durability and decorative needs, eucalyptus timber is used in different ways. Higher density eucalyptus is suitable for flooring (parquet, floor boards, stairs), and for framework (windows, house doors, winter gardens).
