Huon Pine

Lagarostrobos franklinii (formerly Dacrydium franklinii)

Huon Pine is considered to be the “prince” of Tasmanian timbers and one of the earliest trees to evolve in Tasmania.

Its creamy richness of colour, beautiful scent, fine grain, and figure (such as birdseye) make it one of the world’s most desirable furniture and veneering timbers. 

It has been used in ship-building in Tasmania since 1815 due to its amazing durability and workability.

A very slow growing tree, reaching up to 40 metres in height, Huon Pine is very much sought after by craftsmen and artisans because of its unique beauty.

A truly timeless treasure.
