Tasmania has been producing some of the most beautiful timbers in the world for over a century. The Tasmanian timber industry has created this website as a resource for architects, furniture makers and designers, interior designers, specifiers, and builders.
The site is a combination of inspiration, showcasing case studies of exciting and innovative projects using Tasmanian Timber, and technical information.
The technical information has been produced by the Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood (CSAW) at the University of Tasmania, Australia's leading experts in timber.
The site is owned and maintained by the Tasmanian Timber Promotion Board (TTPB). The TTPB was established to:
- Support those who use Tasmania's strong and beautiful timbers.
- Showcase the companies and groups that produce and sell it.
Tasmanian Timber Promotion Board
The Tasmanian Timber Promotion Board is a body corporate that was established by an Act of the Tasmanian Government in 1970. The aim of the Board, as set out in the Act, is to promote the use of wood, in Tasmania and elsewhere. It is charged particularly with promoting timber produced in Tasmania. To discharge this aim, the Board:
- Researches into the use of wood and its derivatives: sawn timber and timber products;
- Markets timber and timber products; and
- Disseminates information on using timber and timber products.
