The term mallee refers to a species’ general growth form (known as a “habit” in biology). Usually smaller and shorter than trees, mallees grow multiple smaller-diameter stems from a common root system. Because of this, most mallee species are ill-suited for lumber, though they do have a propensity for burl growths that can be harvested and used for turning and other small specialty projects.
Brown Mallee is native to Australia with heartwood color that is generally medium brown, sometimes with an orange cast. Pale yellow to gray sapwood is sharply demarcated from heartwood. Brown Mallee is nearly always seen in burl form.
As opposed to Red Mallee, the appellation Brown Mallee doesn’t refer to a specific tree of the same name but rather describes burl pieces from various Eucalyptus species where the wood itself is brown in color.
