Narrow-leaved Ironbark

    (Eucalyptus crebra)


Also known as: Narrow-leaved Red Ironbark, Ironbark, Muggago

Narrow-leaved Ironbark is plentiful around the Clermont area and the Gemfields on the clay and sandy soils. It can grow to around 30 metres tall with a trunk to about 1 metre diameter and rarely has a branch below about 8 metres (which makes getting sample photos difficult!!)
Ironbark timber is heavy, hard and durable and is normally used for sleepers and heavy construction. I found it hard to turn and a little abrasive on the tools but manageable. It doesn't sand very well but takes a high finish really nicely.
