TASMANIAN OAK WOOD
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!
