Flame She-oak

Casuarina inophloia

Flame She Oak is a small slow growing tree distributed over much of western Queensland. Only small amounts of the trunk, which is seldom more than 15-20cm in diameter, is useful in wood turning because of extensive faulting and cracking. Its timber, which polishes well, has a wide band of creamy coloured sapwood and a rich red/brown heartwood that is brought alive by long dark medullary flashes.
