The southernmost occurrence of E. MOR is modulus of rupture or bending strength, MOE is modulus of elasticity or ‘stiffness’, and MCS is maximum crushing strength or compression strength.
It is also being assessed as a fast-growing source of biomass for bioenergy and reconstituted wood products in the South West region. Retrieved 4 December This site ecalyptus cookies: The only documented use is as firewood, although it could be used as a specialty timber.
Factsheet – Eucalyptus rudis
Flooded gum, Moitch Scientific classification Kingdom: The trunk is usually short and has a poor form with a wide-spreading crown. King George Sound, W. It occurs only from Mandurah and Pinjarra south and south-west to Cape Naturaliste.
The bark is rough in most trees but occasionally it is smooth. Intermediates between both these species occur. Most values are from BootleWood in Australia. This measure has the advantage that moisture content variations in the tree during the year are avoided.
It is a graceful, spreading tree with a splitting habit, rkdis dividing near its base into two, three or more main branches.

Tangential and radial shrinkage are estimated as about per cent respectively. 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. Drummond 4; 73 ; iso: Drying and shrinkage As wood dries, it shrinks more in the tangential direction i. Inthe botanist Nikolai Turczaninow named and described Eucalyptus brachypoda in the Bulletin de la Societe Imperiale des Naturalistes de Moscouwhich is now known as a synonym for E.
Heartwood is a yellow to light reddish brown, hard and cross-grained.
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. The ratings are not relevant to above-ground use. Other species such as Goldfields timbers are only available in limited quantities because of their scattered occurrence and the fact that the industry is in the early stages of development.
Strength group and properties Minimum values Ecalyptus for strength groups for green and seasoned timber come from Australian Standard AS ‘Timber – Classification of strength groups’.
The brackets indicate conservative provisional ratings based on the wood density. A semi-quantitative score was used: On fertile soils it also occurs on more elevated sites, such as the Darling Scarp.
Eucalyputs tree is often heavily attacked in spring by insects including leaf minersleaf blister sawflies and lerps. 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. The adult leaves are slightly glossy, green. Adult leaves alternateeucalyptuw 1.

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 particular, there is increasing interest in specialty timbers, and the semi-arid, arid and desert area species have considerable potential for this use. With semi-arid, arid and desert species, a more complex survey was made and reported in Siemon and Kealley There are other species such as red tingle and yellow tingle whose timber is rarely commercially available because the areas of occurrence are predominantly in conservation areas.
Such intermediates are known in the Northam area and further north near Three Springs. Latin rudis, rude, rough, suggested as referring to the apparent worthlessness of the timber.
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 white and dark grey. Flooded gum occurs typically in open woodlands, associated species include with wandooCorymbia calophylla and Eucalyptus marginata.

Juvenile growth coppice or field seedlings to 50 cm: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Eucalyptus rudiscommonly known as moitch ehcalyptus, swamp gum and flooded gumis a tree native to Western Australia. Basic density is oven-dry mass divided by green volume.
