Eucalyptus grandis (Rose Gum, Flooded Gum, Grand Eucalyptus) is a big, fast-growing hardwood tree. Rose gum is one of the most productive plantation eucalyptus when cultivated under the right conditions. It's a large woodland tree that may reach 45 to 55 meters in height and has a trunk diameter of one to two meters.
The timber has a pinkish tinge and is used in joinery, flooring, boat building, paneling and plywood. It has a straight grain, and moderate durability and strength, and is resistant to Lyctus borers. The trunk has a rough, stringy grey-brown bark at the base that extends above a white, powdered bark.
