Its natural reddish brown color gets darker with age creating a beautiful ripened wood for your chic, modern-antiqued palace.
It is rot, decay and mildew resistant making it a perfect outdoor patio set, lounge chairs or a festive umbrella doubling as an extra shaded awning during the warmer seasons of the year.
It is almost as strong, if not equally as strong as Teak wood, known for being able to withstand heavy weight and impacts without chipping, breaking, shredding or scratching. Although, we DO not recommend taking a nail to it for fun!
It is long-lasting. Eucalyptus wood can have a lifespan up to 25 years or more. Be sure to take care of it with the proper wood treatments.
It is sustainable wood because its growth rate is faster than average and / or slowing growing woods. It has a very limited possibility of being over-sourced to make furniture from.
And those are the 5 reasons to love eucalyptus wood for next time you are shopping around for strong, beautiful and sustainable wood furniture! Easy decision, right?!
