Red Box

eucalyptus polyanthemos

Red Box grows throughout central and southern Victoria and south west and central NSW. It sheds part of its bark in small strips to reveal an attractive greyish or cream to white trunk. The hard red timber of Red Box is strong and durable but difficult to use. It makes an excellent fire-wood and fencing material. Wood turners primarily use its dense dark red burls with their yellow markings in their work.
