Spotted Gum is a rich individual timber, desired by Architects and Designers the world over, particularly for its striking back sawn grain structure, attractive fiddleback and vibrant colour palette.
Spotted gum is a large native hardwood that is grown in a variety of forest along the NSW coastal strip into Queensland. The word “spotted” refers to large spot like features that form on the tree as it sheds its bark in strips.
