Description


Hydrowood timber comes from Lake Pieman on the remote West Coast of Tasmania. Lake Pieman was flooded in 1987 when Reece dam was created for the generation of Hydro electricity. Harvesting equipment recovers the trees left standing in the dam for over 25 years from depths of unto 28m below the surface.  When you buy any variety of Hydrowood, you are buying a unique timber product with a character all of its own. Not only does Hydrowood offer you the unique opportunity to own some of Tasmania’s rarest and hard-to-source timber varieties, but it also represents the opportunity to own your own piece of Tasmanian history too.
