Spotted gum, like jarrah and blackbutt, is a good choice for bushfire prone areas.
It has a durability rating of 2, which makes it a good timber for decking. Spotted gum is often plantation grown in Australia, making it a good choice from an environmental standpoint.
It has greater colour variations than blackbutt, ranging from a pale brown to chocolate brown. Spotted gum is a dense timber that shrinks very little compared with other timbers. It has low tannin content, so doesn’t “bleed” like some native timbers do.

Iron bark timber is a dense wood with very little grain pattern or texture.
Iron bark timber is one of the hardest timbers in Australia which makes it ideal for outdoor fencing, furniture and other hardwearing products.
It has an attractive light to dark brown color and it is often used in flooring, paneling, furniture and cabinetry.
