Firestreak also is known as Australian Wormy Chestnut does not actually come from a chestnut tree at all. The timber is named for its characteristics rather than its species and comes from a blend of eucalyptus obliqua, eucalyptus sieberi and eucalyptus fastigata. Firestreak timber grows in the forests of Victoria’s East Gippsland region, where these hardwood species are scorched by fire and stunted by drought.
The ashy brown to rich chocolate timber is perfectly imperfect, adding rustic charm and immediate character to any space. All of our timber is carefully graded so that you can be sure the natural imperfections of this wood will not cause structural weakness in the finished product. Firestreak is, in fact, a solid and extremely hard-wearing timber.
