Eucalyptus Microcorys

Heartwood yellowish brown with a tinge of olive green. Sapwood usually distinctively paler. Texture moderately coarse but even. Grain often interlocked. The wood has a greasy feel and can effect the strength of the bond obtainable with adhesives. An unusual distinguishing characteristic for a eucalypt, is the complete absence of gum veins.
