Bloodwood also known as Brown Salwood is mostly a shrub or small to medium size tree around 5m to 15m tall. Under favourable conditions the trunk may be up to 1m in diameter. Bloodwood grows from Cape York, southwards along the whole of the eastern coast of Queensland and about 200kms into northern NSW. Bloodwood bends, glues and seasons well. It is used mainly for framing, weatherboards and joinery.
