It has it’s own style, a little different from most other pens.
Black Wattle uses
Being such a large group of plants, there are sure to be many uses made of wattles by humans. In fact the Australian Wattles in particular offer such great possibilities that they are grown in 70 countries around the world where they currently cover around 2 million hectares in plantations. These species represent a vast
genetic resource that offers considerable environmental, ecomonic and social benefits for the world. What are they? Here are some examples.
Wattles are grown for their wood
There are large plantations of Acacia mangium (Mangium) in tropical Asian countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia while Acacia melanoxylon (Blackwood) is cultivated in temperate countries such as Brazil, Chile, South Africa, New Zealand and parts of Australia. These and other species are grown for their timber that can be used in house construction, furniture making, paper pulp, fibre board manufacture, cellulose for rayon, charcoal and firewood for village communities. Blackwood produces a high quality cabinet timber from which very beautiful furniture is made, especially in Tasmania!
