Sassafras

Sassafras grows as an understory tree in Tasmania’s wet mixed forests and rainforests but also grows in Victoria and New South Wales.

Sassafras is famous for its spectacular black-heart stain caused by naturally occurring wood fungi which produces a range of contrasting brown to black colours in the heartwood.

Creative veneer lay-ups can produce stunning effects with even slight amounts of heart stain. Spalted Sassafras timber, with fine dark lines caused by stain fungi in the log after harvesting, is also attractive and popular in craft and furniture items.
