What Is River Red Gum?

Timeless Charm, Lasting Quality

Red Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) is a native Australian tree that can be found growing along rivers, creeks and waterways. 

It is a beautiful timber that offers an extensive spectrum of colours ranging from a distinctive red to a light pink and even a deep, almost black finish. If left untreated Red Gum can age into a silvery grey, adding a timeless allure to its character. To further unlock the potential of Red Gum, a variety of oils, stains and sanding can be utilised to enhance it’s unique grain and veins. 

As a result, Red Gum is a versatile material that can seamlessly fit into a variety of designs and styles. However, due to the range and variation, it is always beneficial to check on available red gum stock as each shipment will differ in colour and appearance.
