Tasmanian oak

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tasmanian oak (or Australian oak) is hardwood timber made from some types of Eucalyptus trees in Tasmania. The trees for making Tasmanian oak are Eucalyptus regnans, Eucalyptus obliqua or Eucalyptus delegatensis.[1] It is a light-coloured type of wood.[2] It is used for building, furniture and paper.

Wood from the same species of trees in Victoria is called Victorian ash.
