Found Paper Bark Tree Wood turning by Al Furtado


Beautiful wood grain hard wood and yet is considered to be a nuisance tree in Florida
All excited when I picked it up and did a Google search on what type of wood it was by the bark. how funny it is known as Paper Bark Tree also Melaleuca Tree Originally from Australia and used in Florida’s wetlands but it became very invasive and took over all other local vegetation.Beautiful color and wood grain I wonder why it’s not harvested for hobbies and other wood projects
