Red Gum | Eucalyptus tereticornis
The timber from forest red gum, as its common name indicates, is predominantly red. Heartwood ranges in colour from light to dark red. The sapwood is distinctly paler in colour, a grey or cream-red that is distinguishable from the heartwood. A moderately coarse grain that is uniform in texture complements these rich colours. Forest red gum is a timber that reliably displays interlocked grain.
