Eucalyptus rudis is a species of small to medium-sized red gum tree endemic to Western Australia, occurring on the coastal plain north and south of Perth between Dongarra and Margaret River, the Darling Range and south-eastwards to the Pallinup River, always on stream banks or floodplains, on silty soils with clay subsoil.
Availability Timber from many species is available only in limited quantities, from near the areas where the trees grow naturally or in plantations. Latin rudis, rude, rough, suggested as referring to the apparent worthlessness of the timber.
It is a graceful, spreading tree with a splitting habit, usually dividing near its base into two, three or more main branches. Uses Various past and potential uses are given as a general guide, but the list is obviously not conclusive. For decades the flooded gum has been heavily attacked each spring by insects, with attacks by leaf miners, leaf blister sawflies and lerps. In the Perth area it has rough bark on the trunk and usually the lower parts of the main branches, giving way to smooth, whitish bark higher up.
The properties assessed were turning, machinability, boring, screwholding, stability, sanding, gluing and finishing. The southernmost occurrence of E. There are other species such as red tingle and yellow tingle whose timber is rarely commercially available because the areas of occurrence are predominantly in conservation areas.

WA flooded gum
This book uses the descriptive terms rather than numbers. WA flooded gum is a medium-sized tree with height 10 to 20 m and diameter up to 1 m. Bark rough, fibrousgrey over part or all of trunks, becoming tessellated on older trunks, extending sometimes to branches to ca 10 cm diameter, rarely trunks entirely smooth, greyish white and dark grey.
Further south, many trees have a greater proportion of rough bark. Drying and shrinkage As wood dries, it shrinks more in the tangential direction i. Juvenile growth coppice or field seedlings to 50 cm: Hardness refers to the Janka hardness test and is a measure of resistance to indentation. The crown regenerate in late spring rueis into summer.
