Spotted Gum


Spotted Gum grows to 150' in height and is found on the east coast from the foothills of the rugged Snowy Mountains to the lush coastal regions of southern Queensland. The word "spotted" refers to the soft mottled color caused by weathering of the outer tree as it sheds elliptical strips of bark. A very tough timber, the color varies through pale grey browns and soft creams to a rich chocolate brown. Its frequent wavy grain can produce an attractive and highly valued fiddleback effect.
