Its durability and workability make it one of the best ship building timbers known. The wood contains a natural preserving oil and it's scent is unmistakable. Drawn from a very slow growing tree the timer is like a time capsule. A one metre diameter section can record a thousand years of history. Today the quality of Huon Pine continues to be recognised. 80% of Huon Pine forests are reserved for preservation. The available timber is salvaged from rivers.
