Acacia melanoxylon (Wattle) Details

Commonly known as Tasmanian Blackwood, this is an evergreen tree that will grow rapidly to 30 m tall and 10 m wide. It carries lush, olive-green leaves held on stiff branches and produces wood that is dark, hard, and commonly used to make furniture. It grows best when planted on a well-drained site in full sun with some wind production, and is tolerant of frost, cool climates, and extended dry periods. The Tasmanian Blackwood makes for an impressive specimen and is often grown for its timber. For timber production it should be planted at a density of at least 1,500 stems per hectare to achieve a straight tree.
