Grey Ironbark Timber Flooring
Grey Ironbark is a premium native hardwood that has been well regarded as a high quality timber in Australia. It is particularly hard, strong and durable, with a truly broad range of applications, due to its resistance to insect infestation.
The Grey Ironbark is a medium sized tree of 30 to 50m with a stem diameter of 1.5m. The bark is hard, coarse, with deep furrows and ridges, ranging from dark chocolate to nutty honey to reddish brown and grows from northern New South Wales to Bundaberg, Queensland.
Grey ironbark timber has a wide range of applications. Unseasoned timber is used in house framing, while dressed timber can be employed for both internal and external use.
