  1. Many WA trees have burls- tumor-like growths. They are excellent for box lid panels, decorative work, turning, and carving. Eucalyptus marginata is one of the most common species of Eucalyptus tree in southwest of Western Australia. The tree and the wood are usually referred to by the Aboriginal name Jarrah. Because of the similar appearance of worked jarrah timber to the Honduras mahogany tree, jarrah was once called Swan River mahogany after the river system that runs through Perth. The jarrah is one of the many species of eucalyptus. The jarrah tree usually grows to about 40-50 meters high, with a trunk diameter of three meters. The trunk of the jarrah is long, straight, and has no branches on it. The jarrah tree has rough grayish brown bark with vertical grooves, which sheds in long strips. The jarrah tree is mostly used for timber. Jarrah wood makes very durable, strong furniture and building materials, such as wharves, bridges and railroad ties.
