Jarrah is a popular timber where functionality meets an eye-catching aesthetic. Grown in Western Australia, the hues of the timber reflect the natural surrounds which the heartwood Jarrah recognised for its rich reds and deep browns.
Jarrah is a slow growing, deep rooted tree with a straight trunk that can be 2 metres in diameter and up to 40 metres tall. The bark is rough and covers the tree and branches.

Natural resistance to fire, rot and termites means Jarrah is a prized material in engineering projects such as wharfs, bridges and railway sleepers. In household settings, Jarrah can be used for framing, flooring, linings, joinery and fencing.
