The main focus of IST tenders is black heart sassafras (Atherosperma moschatum) which can command very high prices for good logs. Total value for this single blackwood tree totalled $4130!! According to Forestry Tasmania’s Annual Report in 2016/17 IST sold a total of 829 cubic metres of product [tender and direct sales]. 4.8 cubic metres of the sold blackwood logs contained figured grain, the remaining logs were plain (straight) grain. During the year 20 blackood lots, totalling 20.4 cubic metres, were put to tender over 5 of the 8 tenders held by IST. Lot 13 didn’t quite make the magic number of $10,000 as I had hoped but came very close at $9,600. 300 cubic metres of high quality sawlog per hectare at harvest.

This is an extraordinary price for a small plain-grain blackwood sawlog and again demonstrates the commercial potential of farm-grown commercial blackwood.

Two species attracted strong demand and high prices during the year, these being black heart sassafras (BHS) and huon pine, with average log prices well over $1,000 per cubic metre. That this sawmiller is getting away with selling select grade blackwood for $8,000 per cubic metre should get some tongues wagging (I hope!). The following chart shows annual plain grain, blackwood sawlog tender results for which I have data. Community See All. I’ll include this chart in future reports. One small feature-grain log that sold for a unit value of $2,400 per cubic metre in the January 2015 tender, and.

We sell rare and unique Tasmanian furniture and instrument grade timbers, produce custom timber bench tops and breathtaking staircases from Tasmanian timbers and sell DIY box making packs which are perfect gifts for craft enthusiasts, wood hobbyists and older school-aged children. If it wasn’t for the occasional large eucalypt log IST throws into the tender mix, this trend of diminishing log size would be even more evident.

These comprised 11 individual blackwood logs, and 4 log parcels totalling 70.4 cubic metres (100 logs at an average volume of 0.70 cubic metres per log). These tender results represent the only publically available competitive market prices for blackwood sawlogs. One of the authors of this report was none other than the recently appointed Director of Forestry Tasmania.
