At jaks Timber, we specialise in Wormy Chestnut and are one of Melbourne’s leading suppliers of this timber. Our logs of Wormy Chestnut are directly sourced from sustainably managed forests that are managed by the Victorian Government’s VicForests department.
Australian Wormy Chestnut is a very unique timber. It is imperfect, to say the least, and that’s what makes it attractive. Moreover, it’s a blend of three eucalypts native to the south-east of Victoria.
Deep in the South East Australian forests, the trees are attacked from all corners. From droughts and wildfires to insect attacks, floods and extreme winds, the elements wreak havoc on these trees, thereby stunting their growth.
The Australian Wormy Chestnut is born from these very trees with every piece showcasing nature’s effect. You will find Ambrosia beetle marks, deep red gum veins, squiggly worm marks and pinholes in every piece of Wormy Chestnut.
