Island Specialty Timbers
Special timbers are an integral part of the Tasmanian brand. They are used to produce high-value furniture and craftwood products, and include blackwood, blackheart sassafras, myrtle, silver wattle and celery top pine. With the exception of blackwood and silver wattle, special timbers are mostly derived from mature and old growth forest areas.

This included selling 220 cubic metres of high-qualityproducts through an online tendering process, to ensure that the best possible prices were obtained.
