A complete textbook and reference book that summarises the main aspects of wood utilisation for the student and the timber producer. The book concentrates on native species, although common non indigenous woods are also covered. The first edition of Wood in Australia received the National Book Award of the Building Science Forum of Australia in 1985.

This second edition was prepared as a collaboration between Forests NSW, the Timber Development Association of NSW and the Forest and Wood Products Research and Development Corporation. Through their guidance this book has been updated so that it remains the industry's premier text.

About the Author

Keith Bootle was educated at Dubbo High School and Sydney University before joining what was then the Forestry Commission of New South Wales in 1949 as a research officer in the Division of Wood Technology. In 1953 he became officer-in-charge of the Commission's wood utilisation activities.

Useful reference on Australian wood but..


Could do with more photographic links between actual trees and the wood described. Because of this lack of correlation, it is definitely more for people in the timber trade with a deep knowledge of Australia wood species who require a reference to the specifications of the timbers.

A must for timber enthusiasts


This book is simply a must if you are in the timber industry or have a passion for Australian native hardwoods. A fantastic tool for teaching others.
