Eucalyptus Claremont Seating Collection
Want to furnish (or refurnish) your porch or patio, but don’t know where to start? From metal to plastic to wicker, the choice of materials is endless. But if the natural beauty and timeless look of wood is the only way for you, Eucalyptus Outdoor Furniture is one of the best ways to go.
1. Eucalyptus wood furniture is beautiful, yet surprisingly affordable.
If you’ve ever been impressed by the beauty and quality of teak outdoor furniture, but less than impressed by the expense, we’ve got great news: premium-grade eucalyptus wood (like the kind Plow & Hearth uses in our huge selection of eucalyptus outdoor furniture) is every bit as lustrous and beautiful as teak, but not nearly as expensive.

Why? Part of the reason teak is so expensive is that it takes many years to mature – at least 20 before it’s ready to harvest for quality furniture. Eucalyptus wood, on the other hand, can be ready to be made into fine furniture in as little as 12 years, putting it at a 60% faster growth rate! This makes eucalyptus more readily available as a hardwood than teak– and thus more affordable.
Which leads us to another great thing about eucalyptus: 2. Eucalyptus wood furniture is environmentally friendly.
Choosing eucalyptus furniture saves the environment while saving you money! It’s true – eucalyptus is super-sustainable. Not only is it the fastest-growing hardwood in the world, it can be regrown from its own roots over and over. This means wood production companies can get their trees from carefully managed eucalyptus plantations instead of logging native and endangered rain forests.
Another thing that makes eucalyptus so eco-friendly is the fact that we use more than just the wood. The natural oils are used to make cleaning products, deodorizers, cough drops and decongestants, and insect repellent. The flowers provide food for beneficial birds, insects and bats. And the trees themselves are natural water-purifiers, drawing large amounts of water and cleansing it of toxins before releasing it back into the air.
They’re popular with koalas, too!
3. Eucalyptus wood furniture lasts for many years.
Eucalyptus furniture may be easier on the wallet than teak, but it’s just as resilient. Familiar with the saying, “penny wise, pound foolish?” It’s a great maxim – but it doesn’t apply to eucalyptus, which is actually a great value.
You’d have to search pretty hard to find an affordable hardwood that beats eucalyptus for longevity. The same natural oils that give it its sweet smell also keep destructive bugs at bay – a must for furniture that lives outdoors. These same essential oils also repel water and moisture naturally, protecting the wood and giving it a high resistance to rot and mildew.

The eucalyptus wood used to make Plow & Hearth’s outdoor furniture is high-quality, kiln-dried timber, extremely dense, with a straight grain and smooth, low-maintenance finish that stand up to the elements year after year.
