Spotted gum is a native species that is found on the east coast of Australia. Spotted gum refers most specifically to four species of trees, with the scientific names of Corymbia maculata, Lemon-scented Gum, Corymbia citriodora, and Eucalyptus citriodora. It gets its name from the spots it develops as its bark sheds in strips. This popular Australian hardwood is highly regarded for its durability and resistance to fire. The beautiful and elegant colour variations of spotted gum timber work excellently for both commercial and residential use.

Spotted gum has gained popularity due to its incredible natural qualities. As the hardest Australian hardwood on the market, spotted gum boasts exceptional durability no matter what it is used for – flooring or otherwise. It has one of the highest Janka ratings of any hardwood, which measures resilience against denting and wear.

Along with natural durability, spotted gum flooring is resistant to termites. Typically, as it ages, spotted gum is a hardwood that becomes harder and more resistant to termite infestation. Spotted gum is also naturally resistant to fire. Many people install it in areas that commonly experience bushfires in Australia because it requires no additional fire treatment.

There are very few disadvantages to using spotted gum flooring, considering the ease with which it fits into most Australian homes.
