Topic tags/keywords: wood type logs

I got this log the other day and am trying to identify what type of wood it it. I removed the bark and the texture under it on the outside of the tree is quite bumpy, the wood it self is very hard, with a light pink heartwood that turns quite red when staned and greyish sapwood. Can anyone help me identify it? It was on a golf course.

I think I found it, Red Mallee, not sure but it seems to have the same colors and texture.

I’m not sure about the bark, but that section on the last photo looks a lot like some Eucalyptus that my son got. It was difficult to get any decent sized pieces because it split unmercifully.

Have your say...
