New England Blackbutt is sourced from the coastal ranges and tablelands of northern NSW and southern Queensland. The material is very similar in appearance and properties to Blackbutt (E. pilularis). The colour ranges from pale browns to straw blondes, with gum veins being a common feature. The grain is usually quite straight. New England Blackbutt is similar to Coastal Blackbutt but usually has a little more colour variation and more natural features are common.
