The Jarrah tree, Eucalyptus marginata, is one of the most common and well known trees which grow in the south-west corner of Western Australia. It usually grows up to 40 metres high but some rare examples have grown to 50 metres in height with a 3 metre trunk diameter and are judged to be 500 years old.
The long, straight, branch free bole, durability in wet and weathered conditions and resistance to termites made it the first choice for bridge and wharf construction, railway sleepers, ship building, telegraph poles, house frames, roof shingles and, before the advent of bitumen roads, paving blocks for many city streets in London, Berlin and other European cities.
The finished timber with its magnificent, deep, rich, reddish brown colour and attractive grain is sought after for flooring, panelling, furniture making and has been specified in both commercial and residential projects worldwide.
