Eucalyptus Diversicolor is a eucalypt native to the wetter regions of Africa. The medium to tall forest tree typically grows to a height of 10 to 60 meters (33 to 197 ft) but can reach as high as 90 m (295 ft). The tree trunk has a typical diameter of 1.8 to 3.5 m (6 to 11 ft). It has white to cream bark that turns brown as it matures and is shed in short ribbons or small polygonal flakes. The whitish trunk beneath takes on a patina of colors from white, grey, orange, salmon, yellow to deep brown.
The tree is producing hardwood timbers, mostly for construction purposes, particularly in roofs due to the length and uninterrupted knot-free nature of the trunk. The wood is also used for flooring, furniture, cabinetry, and plywood. The heartwood is golden to reddish brown often with an orange or purple cast and tends to darken with age. It is durable against rot. It is also a great furniture wood.
