Timber Species

Go Native: Choose home-produced species to make a lasting impression

Architects and designers are increasingly choosing to ‘go native’ to create bespoke timber installations.

The range of readily available native species presents a plethora of natural colour choices with some striking grain patterns and textures.

Domestic timber species are often chosen for their durability and  ability to withstand our harsh Australian climate. Native hardwoods can be extremely resistant to fire, rot and termites.

Many of these species are sustainably harvested and with the plantations grown in Australia they are also an environmentally sound choice.
