GREY AND RED IRONBARK (EUCALYPTUS PANICULATA & EUCALYPTUS SIDEROXYLON)
Ironbarks are a very characteristic group of trees, aptly named after their thick, compact and hard bark. The commercially available Ironbark species are divided into Grey and Red Ironbarks. Trees grow in north central Victoria, on the inland slopes of New South Wales and occasionally in the coastal districts of Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
The timber presents a stunning array of colours, ranging from pale grey or light chocolate to darker reds and browns. The texture is moderately coarse and even, with interlocking grain.
Common uses for Ironbark are Heavy engineering construction, marine construction, poles, piles, sleepers, flooring, decking and parquetry.
