White gum is a tree with may forms, generally with a wavering trunk often breaking into branches at low levels.
It occurs in a wide variety of forest and woodland types but is generally absent from mountain areas.
The timber is brittle and doesn't tolerate exposure, but is a useful hardwood for internal fittings.
It polishes well and in panels resembles English Ash.
