Huon Pine

lagarostrobus franklinii

Having dominated the forests of southern Australia 38,000 years ago, Huon Pine now grows only in west and south west Tasmania. It takes 800 years for a tree to reach 20-30 metres. Durable, light, fine textured and oily its timber is easy to work and has a beautiful yellow colour. Widely used in ship-building, furniture making, joinery and turning, nowadays only limited quantities of this very slow growing tree are logged.
