Beautifully coloured, resilient and perfectly suited for tongue and groove flooring, Tasmanian Oak is the #1 preferred hardwood also used to construct furniture, scantlings, cabinetry and panelled walls. Harvested from PEFC-certified, sustainable hardwoods from the temperate, north western forests of found in the state, Tasmanian Oak is a favourite among building designers and architects desiring an elegantly modern, distinctly crisp appearance to enhance their projects.


Tasmanian Oak is a collective name describing three, nearly identical categories of eucalypt hardwoods–Alpine ash, Mountain ash and Messmate. Early timbers workers thought these eucalypts demonstrated the same strength and durability as the English Oak and decided to call these particular species of hardwoods Tasmanian Oak.

Tasmanian oak comes from managed forests where trees are grown according to sustainable development principles as part of an overall sustainable forest management system. The meaning of sustainable forest management, as defined by the Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe, involves the “use and stewardship of forests…that sustains their biodiversity…regeneration capacity…and potential to fulfill relevant economic, social and ecological functions at global, national and local levels.”


Janka hardness is the number ascribed to a wood that reveals how much pounds-force (lbf) it takes to to imbed a 11.28 mm diameter steel ball into the wood until only half the ball is visible. The janka hardness of Tasmanian oak is 1350, or 35% harder than teak wood. Janka hardness ratings are commonly used in determining whether a type of wood is applicable for use as flooring.

  • Presents an even open, straight grain complemented by visible growth rings

Tasmanian oak is the perfect choice for tongue and groove flooring, a technique of laying flooring that involves affixing two panels of Tasmanian oak together, with one side of each panel grooved and the other side having a projection, or “tongue”. By interlocking panels using the groove and tongue system, the panels remain securely in place. Decorative moldings are then usually attached where the walls meet a tongue and groove floor.
