Fiddleback Myrtle Wall Table
A prehistoric species, the Myrtle beech grows to 30-40 metres in Tasmania and Southern Victoria. Its foliage is characteristic of other beeches. Though usually pinkish to red in colour, the heartwood may be grey cream or orange. The sapwood is white. Very occasionally a tree can have black stripes running through it and this is called Tiger Myrtle. It has long been valued in cabinet making and wood craft.
