Black Heart Sassafras (Atherosperma moschatum) grows in Tasmania's wet mixed forests as well as Victoria and New South Wales. Sassafras is famous for its spectacular black heart stain caused by naturally occurring wood fungi. These fungi produce a range of contrasting brown, black, yellow and gray colors in the heartwood. The wood is light, strong and works easily. Tonally Black Heart Sassafras is similar to Black and Claro Walnut, Maple and African Mahogany.
