    I've been looking at various wood moisture meters online, but haven't been able to find Blue Gum Eucalyptus (E. Globulus, I believe) on any of the included lists that are used to select the correction factor for the meters.

    This is a fairly widely used fuel wood... here at Casa Kilowatt... in California generally... and also Down Under. Does anybody here at Hearth.com know of a reference that lists the resistance vs moisture values for this species, or does anyone know a common hardwood that is similar to Eucalyptus in moisture-meter terms?

    regards,
