THE STORY OF AUSTRALIAN WORMY CHESTNUT

The forests of Australia’s native hardwood species are like no other place on earth. Grown in the mountainous regions of southeast Victoria, the Australian Wormy Chestnut tree is subject to extreme environmental distresses such as drought, fire and wind, producing a timber with high resistance to shock and wear, and unmatched durability and strength.

Such harsh environmental conditions cultivate the Australian Wormy Chestnut into a stunning wood of uncommon color variance—from radiant blond to warmly toasted brown with hints of red. Its signature black rings are evidence of naturally occurring forest fires, while unique worm markings show the habitation of ambrosia beetles nesting just under the bark.

The story of Australian Wormy Chestnut is written on every board. Its signature marks and distinctive colors are carefully preserved to the highest environmental standards of processing, drying, machining and inspection.

From the moment you select Australian Wormy Chestnut for your space, every grain will tell you its story—written by nature, meticulously preserved, and enshrined for the ages.
