Red Cedar

toona australis

Red Cedar once grew extensively in the rainforests along the east coast of Australia. Today it is difficult to obtain. Its susceptibility to the insect tip moth makes it difficult to regenerate and impossible to grow in plantation stands. Its beautiful wood, usually a rich red-brown with distinct growth rings, is soft, lightweight, aromatic and durable. One of Australia’s finest cabinet timbers, its rarity now severely limits its usage.
