Blackbutt Sizes and Specifications
Blackbutt is a species that grows in abundance in the coastal forests of New South Wales and southern Queensland. The common name is derived from the distinctive black, charcoal look that is only on the base of the trunk. The timber is renowned for both its strength and versatility of application. Blackbutt is a straight grained timber with a warm nutty hue, which will complement a range of interior designs where a lighter neutral palette is required.
