The Marri tree, Corymbia calophylla, is another variety of the "Tall Timbers" which grow in the south-west of Western Australia. They can reach a height of 60 metres and be between 200 and 300 hundred years old.
Commonly found in mixed forests with Jarrah and Karri they were not highly prized for their timber and many were left to provide shelter for stock.
The timber varies in colour from pale yellow to reddish brown and as specialist timber mills have perfected the production and drying procedures for this species, so it has become much sought after for the manufacture of fine furniture, flooring and feature panelling.
