about the wood ...
Here in Far North Queensland, the locals colloquially classify the "stringybarks" as red, white and yellow. Red Stringybark (Eucalyptus resinifera) is also known as "Red Mahogany". White Stringybark (Eucalyptus acmenoides) is officially colloquialised as "White Mahogany" but known to locals as "White Stringybark" while Yellow Stringybark is a local colloquialisation of "White Mahogany" (White Stringybark) ... confusing ?? ... yes.
