The Sydney Blue Gum is an Australian native hardwood species that is widely used in general construction and for flooring, furniture and joinery.

This gum tree is a large hardwood species growing to a height of 60 metres or more. It appears in forests along the coast of New South Wales and southern Queensland. This hardwood is also widely grown as a plantation wood in South Africa and South America, where fast growth development yields lumber of much lower density than that of the Australian wood.

The colour of the wood ranges from dark pink to reddish/brown, with a grain that is typically straight with the occasional interlocking grain. The texture is moderately coarse and gum veins are commonly found in this wood.

A Good All Round Hardwood

The Sydney Blue Gum is a crucial all purpose wood used in the building industry especially in New South Wales. It is commonly used in flooring, cladding, fencing, and paneling. Other typical uses this hardwood has around the home are landscaping (garden sleepers), furniture and joinery.

This wood is quite easy to dry (relative to most other eucalypts) and is also straightforward hardwood to work with (dress and fix). It behaves well to many different finishes and when polish is applied, the resulting look is excellent.

These are the key reason why this hardwood is so popular for decorative applications where only a moderate durability and resilience is required.
