Eucalyptus urograndis (Eucalyptus Grandis x E. urophylla hybrid), commonly known as Eucalyptus, is a hardwood species grown mainly on plantations in Brazil. Eucalyptus trees are about 65-100 ft (20-30 m) tall and have a 3-4 ft (1-1.2 m) trunk diameter. The average dried weight of the wood is 53 lbs/ft3 (850 kg/m3) and has a Janka rating of 1,420 lbf (6,330 N).
Its colour ranges from a paler bright pink to a deep brownish red. Black Cherry and Honduran Mahogany have both been used as comparisons for appearance. Age has the tendency to deepen the wood's colour. It has open pores that are tiny to medium in size and a medium texture. The grain is typically even and straight. Additionally, there are not many knots or other unusual grain patterns because the wood is produced and maintained on a plantation. Although it is vulnerable to insect invasion, the heartwood has a fair amount of durability in terms of decay resistance. It is generally simple to work with and can burn readily. It stains, binds, and finishes rather well.
In relation to imported wood, the pricing is fair. Flooring, timber, interior millwork, cabinets, plywood, and turned items are some of the most typical uses for eucalyptus wood.
Eucalyptus in use today is a hybrid of Eucalyptus grandis and E. urophylla and is commonly sold under the brand name Lyptus® owned by the Brazilian company Fibria.
