What is ‘Spotted Gum’?

Spotted gum is the colloquial term for the Corymbia maculata gum tree –  a medium to tall-sized tree growing to 35-45m in height native to the Eastern states of Australia. One of Australia’s premium native hardwoods, the reference to “spotted” refers to the smooth, unique mottled pattern of the bark compared to other trees in the same Corymbia family. The specific scientific name of maculata is derived from the Latin word maculatus, meaning “spotted”. 

Spotted gum timber is known for its strength and durability, and therefore, its subsequent use in construction such as for wharves and bridges in the early days of Australia’s settlement. In the modern-day, spotted gum timber decking is extremely popular for Australian homes looking to add a natural, native aesthetic to their outdoor entertainment area. As a construction material, spotted gum timber is exported around the world as a premium timber product. 

Variations in the colour of spotted gum timber decking is normal as it’s a natural material. The colour can, and will, vary in intensity: from faded grey-browns and muted creams to a deep, chocolate brown.
