Huon Pine

Huon pine or Lagarostrobos franklinii is Australia’s oldest living tree, extremely slow growing with a fine grain and close-spaced growth rings unique to Tasmania. 

Highly prized by wood craftsmen due to its ease of use Huon pine is initially a pale straw colour but mellows to a really deep golden lustre over time with a strong aromatic perfume. Woodworkers love it especially when they find a highly figured or speckled piece known as Bird's eye. Traditionally and to this day still used in wooden boat building due to its natural oils that resist rotting. 

There are accessible sites to see Huon pines growing either on the West Coast or the Tahune Forest Reserve near Geeveston. Most Huon pine now used is salvaged from an area near Strahan on the West Coast of Tasmania.
