A dead 10,5000 year old Huon pine tree in Tasmania. Huon Pine is known as ‘the prince of Tasmanian timbers’. The richness of its golden colour and figure make it one of the world’s most desirable furniture and veneering timbers. The wood contains a natural preserving oil with an unmistakable perfume, and its fine and even grain makes the wood exceptionally easy to work with hand tools.
