Eucalyptus abliqua, is commonly known as Messmate, Stringbark or Australia Oak, and is a hardwood free native to South Eastern Australia. One of Australia's most important hardwoods, Messmate is often sold blended with Mountain Ash as "Tasmanian Oak". The sapwood is a pale straw colour, the heartwood is a light brown. It has an even texture with straight grain and well defined growth rings. Gum veins are quite common.
Pale browns, tans and subtle hues of straw and cream create a timeless, elegant look unrivalled in timber flooring. The colour and even grain appearance lend themselves to contemporary interiors, where light and space are important factors.
