Victorian Ash Timber Flooring
Victorian Ash is the collective name for Mountain Ash (eucalyptus regnant) and Alpine Ash (eucalyptus delegatensis). Grown in south eastern Victoria, predominantly along the Great Dividing Range, these virtually identical hardwoods are renowned for their exceptional height and straightness.
Victorian Ash is sought after for appearance grade applications such as furniture, flooring, staircases, mouldings, window frames and doors. It is also valuable in structural use for frames, trusses and laminated beams. It ranges in colour from a highly attractive pale blonde through to nutty brown tones.
Natural features, such as gum vein, add decorative appeal to this species, telling the tale of the tree’s previous life in the natural elements. With a grain that is straight, open and even with a uniform texture, Victorian Ash is easy to work, with a good propensity for steam bending and laminating.
The timber responds extremely well to careful air drying, reconditioning and quarter sawing techniques.
