Brown Barrel is a Eucalyptus tree that can be found in the mountains of NSW and Victoria, including in our area (Mittagong). It can grow up to 50 m high. The sapwood is a pale blonde/brown and is quite narrow. The Heartwood is slightly darker and often exhibits gum pockets. As a hardwood it is often used for countertops, general construction and flooring. It matches Spotted Gum and Stringybark well. Brown Barrel is also known as Cut-tail.
