tasmanian timber species
Tasmania, with its unique geography and environment, has some of the finest cool temperate hardwood forests in the world and an expanding hardwood and softwood plantation estate. Using only the soil, sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide from the air, these forests produce some of the strongest and most beautiful timbers in the world.
Renowned for almost 200 years, each species has its own character and individual richness.
