Celery Top Pine is a conifer native to Tasmania. It is named for its distinctive celery-like leaves and is best known as hard and durable timber used, in the early days for railway sleepers and stair treads.
The timber is creamy white, darkening to a mellow rosy gold hue over time and exposure to light. Celery top is light and easy to work, it turns well and has long been employed in the traditional crafts of boat building and spindle turning.
It provides a hard wearing surface for flooring and has an attractive fine-grained appearance.
