Cladocalyx Decking Cape Town

The specie yields a beautiful blond to tan, yellow to brown, honey colour timber. It is classified as a “Class 1 Heavy Hardwood” of exceptional durability and is well suited to heavy marine applications and external building applications. It, unlike many other Eucalypts, it is relatively stable in drying, if cut correctly, free of pith. Timber harvested from Eucalyptus Cladocalyx has little defect and is prized for its durability.


The specie is very well suited as a replacement to previously imported tropical Hardwood used in external applications such as Balau, Ekki, Tali, Greenheart, Massranduba etc. It is far superior in external applications to the likes of Meranti, Iroko, Mahogany, Limbali, Sapele and Garapa.
