Figure and Craft Timber

Tasmania's special species provide a different colour, grain and figure set than the much more plentiful eucalypt hardwoods.

Tasmania, with its unique geography and environment, has some of the best cool temperate forests in the world. Using only the soil, sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide from the air, these forests yield Eucalypt hardwoods and Tasmania's special species: Blackwood; Myrtle; Sassafras and the endemic pines; Celery top pine and Huon pine.
