Sydney Blue Gum Sizes and Specifications
Sydney Blue Gum
Sydney Blue Gum is a popular species that grows on the New South Wales Coast. A large tree that has a distinctive bluish tinge to its smooth bark, it is very common in the Sydney and Blue Mountains area, thus the origins of its common name. Sydney Blue Gum is a relatively straight grained timber, with some small amounts of interlocking. The beautiful colour and its strong and hard natural attributes make Sydney Blue Gum sought after for both domestic and commercial flooring projects the world over.
- Select Grade: The features that are present in Select Grade flooring are relatively small and few in number, and although they are visible the features do not dominate the appearance of the floor.

- Feature Grade (High Feature): Feature grade flooring is heavily peppered with natural features, particularly large gum veins.
- Rustic Grade: A full featured floor to provide an old world charm. It may contain features that are more prominent than Feature Grade but with the structural integrity of a Feature Grade floor.
