Description:

The tallest known flowering tree in the world, Tasmanian Oak grows in well- drained, high rainfall areas of Tasmania and Victoria, Australia. It is an evergreen tree that grows very quickly. Often referred to as Swamp Gum or Stringy Gum, it is a member of the Eucalyptus family.

Highly regarded for its long, clear, straight sections free from knots, builders and furniture makers alike use this material for everything from paneling to steam-bending. It is also becoming more and more popular for flooring due to its lovely golden blonde heartwood. Gum veins are common adding to the uniqueness of this material!

Note: All pictures of boards that appear wet, have been wiped with denature alcohol to help show natural color. We use denature alcohol because it evaporates and does not effect the moisture content of the wood. Also, please keep in mind that the pictures below are only examples of the wood and not actual products available for sale.
