The bark is rough in most trees but occasionally it is smooth. In its area of natural occurrence it should not be confused with other species and with its rough bark may be anticipated along streams and in swampy areas. King George Sound, W.

Factsheet – Eucalyptus rudis

The tree is relatively fast-growing with potential for remediation of land affected by moderate levels of salinity. Further south, many trees have a greater proportion of rough bark. In the Perth area it has rough bark on the trunk and usually the lower parts of the main branches, giving way to smooth, whitish bark higher up. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Tangential and radial shrinkage are eucalyphus as about per cent eucalyprus. Basic density is oven-dry mass divided by green volume.

A semi-quantitative score was used: Ratings are now available for about seventy species for decay, and for decay plus termites. Flooded Gum Eucalyptus rudis Robert Powell: Naturalistes Moscou 22 2: Reconditioning is essential for recovering collapse which may have occurred during the drying process, rudjs is essential for species such as the ash-type eucalypts of eastern Australia.


Cultivated seedlings measured at eucaluptus Wood density Green density is the density of wood eucwlyptus the living tree, defined as green mass divided by green volume, and useful for estimating transport costs. Flooded gum Eucalyptus rudis In south-western Australia flooded gum replaces its close relative river gum Eucalyptus camaldulensis as the dominant tree of many moist sites — swamps and the surrounds of lakes, river banks and floodplains, and alluvial soils generally.

The Aboriginal name, moitch, is useful in avoiding confusion with an eastern Australian eucalypt also called flooded gum.

The crown regenerate in late spring and into summer. Where no strength data were available, air-dry density was used in accordance with the Australian Standard AS Timber – Classification of strength groups to predict the strength group.

The adult leaves are slightly glossy, green. Flooded gum occurs typically in open woodlands, associated species include with wandooCorymbia calophylla and Eucalyptus marginata.

WA flooded gum is a medium-sized tree with height 10 to 20 m and diameter up to 1 m. The trunk is usually short with poor form, and the crown wide-spreading. This site uses cookies: It occurs mainly on river flats and creek banks, in similar occurrences to those of river red gum E. Green and dry strength groups are S5 and SD5.

The heartwood is hard, cross grained and a yellow to light reddish brown colour.

Availability Timber from many species is available only in limited quantities, from near the areas where the trees grow naturally or in plantations. Air-dry density is the average mass divided by volume at 12 per cent moisture content this is the average environmental condition in the coastal capital cities around Australia.


Bark rough, fibrousgrey over part or all of trunks, becoming tessellated on older trunks, extending sometimes to branches to ca 10 cm diameter, rarely trunks entirely smooth, greyish rkdis and dark grey. It occurs only from Mandurah and Pinjarra south and south-west to Cape Naturaliste.
