Blackbutt is a large tree, and is quite common throughout South Eastern Australia. It is identified by the sleeve of dark rough bark that extends approximately half way up the trunk. Trees of over 60 metres in height are not uncommon, and Blackbutt is one of Australia's most economically important native hardwoods.
The colourations are typically pale honey and straw to light brown. Coarse textured and fairly straight grained, with numerous small gum veins and pin holes. The lightness of the timber makes it a perfect choice for most contemporary house designs, where open plan living and a sense of spaciousness are important considerations.
