Sustainable timber management

Sustainable timber management has a special meaning if we have to wait 1000 years for a Huon Pine to mature. The bulk of the Tasmanian industry practice is to cut down then cultivate and grow mono-culture in place of the quality native species. We only harvest old discarded stumps and trunks - no new trees are milled. Tasmanian Special Timbers has a long history of managing Tasmania's exotic timbers in a sustainable manner.
As a company we pride ourselves on ensuring that our very special timbers are used to create wonderful furniture, craft products, pianos, musical instruments, boats and specialty veneers. Our methods of production are those of a hands-on labour-intensive type of operation. Each piece of timber is assessed and cut for maximum value. Tasmanian Special Timbers considers this responsible management of a declining natural resource.
Our timbers include Blackwood, Celery Top Pine, Huon Pine, King William Pine, Leatherwood, Myrtle and Sassafras. Some of the Huon Pine logs have been carbon dated and have been established to be greater than 4,000 years old.
