Go Native: Focus on Blackbutt
Blackbutt is a readily available commercial Australian hardwood that is commonly used for structural and exterior installations.
Blackbutt grows quickly so is easy to regenerate as plantation timber – making it a sound environmental choice.
Its name describes the buttress or butt of a tree after a bushfire when it becomes significantly darker. It is also known as Coastal Blackbutt, which helps distinguish from a different species, New England Blackbutt.
