Red Cedar in Australia

Red Cedar in Australia


Through historical photographs, art works, furniture, crafts and interiors, Red Cedar in Australia provides an engaging scholarly account of this beautiful and highly valuable tree.

Australian red cedar, Toona ciliata, has played an important part in Australia's natural and cultral history and early economy. Red Cedar in Australia traces the story of this remarkable tree - from its European discovery in 1788 and the arguments about its identification, to the growth of the cedar timber industry in the 19th Century and the use of wood in furniture, interiors and craftwork.

'Beautifully illustrated, it traces the discovery of the once plentiful cedar in New South Wales and Queensland, the growth of the cedar industry and the wood's use in furniture, interiors and craft.' Australian Country Style, August 2004.
