Why Choose Blackbutt Decking?

Blackbutt decking is a great all-round choice that is ideal for structural, interior and exterior projects alike. Here are some of the factors that make it a unique, attractive and practical choice for decking and outdoor structures:


The colour varies from golden yellow to pale brown. In rare cases, a pinkish tone can be seen throughout. Blackbutt has a straight grain, even colour and even texture – giving it a unique and eye-catching finish especially when polished, stained or painted.


Blackbutt is a Class 1 rated hardwood with a high density, at around 900kg per cubic metre. Its superior strength and durability make it an ideal choice for building a timber deck that will stand the test of time. If properly maintained, Blackbutt decks can last up to 40 years!


Although it is a strong and durable Class 1 hardwood, it is very easy to work with – you can cut, machine, polish, stain and paint it with ease.


Blackbutt decking meets the Australian standards of fire resistance – gaining its name from the blackened base of the tree following a bushfire. The high density of the timber also provides a natural resistance to termites.

Is Blackbutt Eco-Friendly?

Sourced from the East Coast of Australia, it has a quick growth rate which makes it one of the most readily available and eco-friendly species of timber available within Australia.

Blackbutt Maintenance & Care

Blackbutt Decking has an extremely straight grain which can cause the timber to open and shrink as the climate warms and cools. This will occur even with regular maintenance, therefore it is more suited to under-cover areas where the climate does not fluctuate so much. 

We recommend that you speak with us for advice on whether a particular timber will be suitable for your individual requirements and how it should be maintained.
