Victorian Ash
Tallest flowering plant
in the world



Question
What was the largest living thing on earth?

A
nswer...
It was our Australian Eucalyptus believe it or not.

Most of the really tall ones have been felled or burnt down in the bush fires, especially the big fire in 1939 (Black Friday).

We make sure to only use timber from recycled or sustainable environmentally friendly resources. Plantations and regrowth forests from 1939 onwards.

(just over 2 hours drive from Melbourne CBD)
Nestled in the gateway to the Snowy Mountain region Heyfield is a small timber town situated on the Thomson River in the wetlands of Central Gippsland.  Once home of eight sawmills, Heyfield has the largest hardwood sawmill in the Southern Hemisphere.


Gippsland was once the home of the tallest trees in the world!
You can't change the past - The future is our responsibility.

 
Victorian Ash is just one example of a sustainable timber that won't cost the earth.

We should be proud of our giant gum trees here in Australia.

The furniture industry gives the timber fancy names like Tasmanian Oak, its not really an oak tree at all its an Australian eucalyptus tree which has gum nuts and flowers, its a totally different species to an English Oak which has an acorn.

I think eucalyptus trees make beautiful timber, trees need to be understood and respected
