The crown regenerate in late spring and into summer. Where test data were available, they are shown in bold print.
WA flooded gum is a medium-sized tree with height 10 to 20 m and diameter up to 1 m. Hardness refers to the Janka hardness test and is a measure of resistance to indentation.
Tangential and radial shrinkage are estimated as about per cent respectively. In particular, there is increasing interest in specialty timbers, and the semi-arid, arid and desert area species have considerable potential for this use. Heartwood is a yellow to light reddish brown, hard and cross-grained. Latin rudis, rude, rough, suggested as referring to the ruddis worthlessness of the timber. Naturalistes Moscou 22 2: Green density is the density of wood in the living tree, defined as green mass divided by green volume, and useful for estimating transport costs.
Retrieved from ” https: With semi-arid, arid and desert species, a more complex survey was made and reported in Siemon and Kealley This ecalyptus has the advantage that moisture content variations in the tree rucis the year are avoided.
The figures given are shrinkage from green to 12 per cent moisture content, before steam reconditioning treatment, and with some species after stream reconditioning. Retrieved 4 December Forest Products Commission Western Australia. Branchlets lacking oil glands in the pith. In grading structural timbereach species is allocated a ranking for green timber of S1 strongest to S7, and for seasoned timber SD1 strongest to SD8.
Retrieved 3 December Such intermediates are known in the Northam area and further north near Three Springs. The properties assessed were turning, machinability, boring, screwholding, stability, sanding, gluing and finishing.
Views Read Edit View history. Reconditioning is essential for recovering collapse which may have occurred during the drying process, and is essential for species such as the ash-type eucalypts of eastern Australia.
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. 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.
Flooded gum, Moitch Scientific classification Kingdom: On fertile soils it also occurs on more elevated sites, such as the Darling Scarp. MOR is modulus of rupture or bending strength, MOE is modulus of elasticity or ‘stiffness’, and MCS is maximum crushing strength or compression strength. Basic density is oven-dry mass divided by green volume.
Wood density Green density is the density of wood in the living tree, defined as green mass divided by green volume, and useful for estimating transport costs. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies.

Adult leaves alternatepetioles 1. Eucalyptus rudis has two subspecies: Flooded gum occurs typically in open forest or woodlandassociated with wandoo, marri and jarrah.
There eucakyptus other species such as red tingle and yellow tingle whose timber is rarely commercially available because euxalyptus areas of occurrence are predominantly in conservation areas. Drummond 4; 73 ; iso: Dressing, sanding, drilling, turning and finishing are rated as good, carving is fair.
It varies with season and growing conditions. Workability With south-west and plantation-grown trees, comments are made on the comparative ease or difficulty of turning, nailing and bending, on susceptibility to splitting and other working properties.
Wood description This description can include heartwood and sapwood colour, grain, figure. A semi-quantitative score was used: Atlas of Living Australia. Class Life Years 1 More than 25 2 15 to 25 3 8 to 15 4 Less than 8 The ratings are not relevant to above-ground use.
Very limited availability from private property. Juvenile growth coppice or field seedlings to 50 cm: The adult leaves are slightly glossy, green.
Green and dry strength groups are S5 and SD5. The crowns regenerate in late spring. Consequently, the strength values quoted are from the above two tables. Natural stands are used in the apiculture industry as a source of pollen producing a light amber honey. The Aboriginal name, moitch, is useful in avoiding confusion with an eastern Australian eucalypt also called flooded gum.
Flooded gum occurs typically in open woodlands, associated species include with wandooCorymbia calophylla and Eucalyptus marginata. For decades the flooded gum has been heavily attacked each spring by insects, with attacks by leaf miners, leaf blister sawflies and lerps.
