Jarrah is a large sized hardwood found only in the south west of Western Australia. It is Western Australia’s principal tree in terms of both the extent of forest and in the versatility of its timber.

The bark is rough, covering the whole trunk to the smallest branches and is similar to that of the stringybarks.


The heartwood varies from rich reds to deep browns, with sapwood being a clearly distinguished pale yellow. The texture is course and generally straight grained although some interlocked grain may feature.


The heartwood is durable (Class 2), allowing a wide range of applications. The material works well and has been widely used in a variety of applications including flooring, joinery, panelling, sleepers, poles and piles, heavy construction and domestic structural framing. Definition of properties
