Eucalypt Burl

Sometimes called Tasmanian Oak (Eucalyptus regnans), this abundant species grows mainly in Tasmania, but also in Victoria.  It grows to a height of 300 feet with a diameter of up to 8 feet.  Because they generally grow so close together, they will grow to 80% of their height before sending out branches.  Its heartwood is pale to light brown with pinkish tints.  This wood is often used for flooring, fine furniture building and framing for houses.
