No use to me, but I'd be curious to see the planks, if indeed they are milled. Substantial sticks.

Great looking sticks.  Such a shame they are Eucalyptus.  My limited experience of this timber is it splits and twists so badly it is barely worth milling.  Might have uses for crude landscaping milled into sleeper sizes, but the user will have to expect serious movement. 

 

Fun friday fact....Eucalypts are the most planted tree in the world, largely due to their extraodinary speed of growth and ability to find moisture in even the most arid conditions.

You'd think it would be good for big structural beams. Does it warp less when left bigger, like 12x12 sort of size?

It is good fire wood  ( stove only as it spits a goodun ) and also makes charcoal . You need a decent mechanical splitter really though .

Nice looking sticks but they'll be a pig to split by hand

 

How come one ended up through the fence?

 

 

The fence is dog legged Catweazle so no damage , was a bit of a pig to fell because the fence was up against all four of them, seem to be having a run on Euc atm :dontknow:

Is it duarable? I might be interested

Apparently so, its also used to make furniture. Dont know how they deal with it to stop the warping/splitting @Squaredy is referring to.

Was thinking the same, someone on here may well know the ins/outs of this. Anyone?

Heavy old gear J, the strops were creaking when I craned on the bigger stick, the telehandler could only lift one end so I craned it off and that's where its staying until we decide what to do with it. I am loathed to cut it . Its 26` long.
