Spotted Gum

eucalyptus maculata

The Spotted Gum, so named because of the “spotted” or mottled appearance which the trunk develops as it sheds its bark, grows along the New South Wales coastline, up into Queensland. The heart wood of the spotted gum often features gum veins and fiddleback. Being shock resistant it is used in heavy construction, housing and as tool handles. Spotted Gum burls are the part of the tree most often used in wood turning.
