Leatherwood

eucryphia lucida

Another distinctive Tasmanian timber, it grows in the wetter western and southern regions along with Myrtle, Blackwood and Sassafras. The heartwood is pink to brown in colour with darker stripes arising from fungal infections. Its timber is tough, fine and with regular grain. The nectar from its flowers produces premium quality leatherwood honey.
