When you’re searching for eco-friendly building materials, you don’t have to sacrifice other construction qualities. Many companies are entertaining the thought of building with eucalyptus wood as an alternative to traditional wood. Eucalyptus wood, a fast-growing hardwood, is sustainable because new growth only takes a few years to mature.
Building with eucalyptus wood is desirable because, unlike other timbers, it has very little taper over long lengths. This quality makes it more consistent and efficient. There are more timber and less waste. And generally speaking (each Eucalyptus species is slightly different) it is harder that most North American woods.
Because eucalyptus wood is sustainable, it is now being used as an alternative to mahogany and Brazilian cherry. Both of these species are endangered, slow-growing and comparatively expensive. Building with eucalyptus wood is quickly becoming a natural choice.
Another benefit is that amaZulu has worked with the EPA to produce the first non-arsenic, non-erosive pressure treatment for eucalyptus wood. Pressure treated eucalyptus poles have at least a 20-year ground burial rate.
Our eucalyptus poles can be used a variety of applications. Larger poles can be utilized for construction support structures. Poles with a smaller diameter are perfect for fences, decorative trim, trellises and much more.
Imagine these structures made from beautiful, sustainable eucalyptus:
