Blue Gum Cladding
Sydney Blue Gum, named for its attractive blue-grey bark, grows along the New South Wales coastline, extending from Batemans Bay into southern Queensland. The tree can grow to a height of more than 60 metres. Sydney Blue Gum is a common plantation timber in Australia.
The timber is usually straight grained, with a small percentage showing some interlocking grain. The texture is moderately coarse, with distinctive colour varying from soft pinks to dark pinks and browns.
