WORMY CHESTNUT

Category:

mixed Eucalyptus obliqua, sieberi and fastigata.

No two pieces of Australian Wormy Chestnut are ever the same.  Deep in the forests of southern eastern Australia, the trees are affected by wildfires, years of drought, attack by insects, the occasional flood and winds so strong that the trees stunt their growth to cope with the environment. It is from these trees that Australian Wormy Chestnut is born with each piece showing nature’s signature. Deep red gum veins formed by fire, ambrosia beetle marks, pin holes and squiggly worm marks are all reflected in Australian Wormy Chestnut. A suitable coating can be applied to enhance the grain and protect the floor, making it easier to maintain. An Australian Wormy Chestnut Floor requires minimal maintenance and is the perfect choice for busy lifestyles. Overall Wormy Chestnut is a blonde colour with the gentle blend of a straw brown to medium brown tones.

Heartwood class 3 above ground, not Termite resistant and Janka hardness of 8.1
