Huon Pine takes hundreds of years to mature and because it doesn't rot like other timbers, it's possibly the best timber to use for boat building and damp footing construction. The oil in Huon Pine has a chemical make-up that ensures it binds better to the fibres in the tree and does not dissipate like other oils. It is these qualities that also make it such a good pest repellent.
