The Huon pine grows in the wet temperate rainforests of Tasmania. Slow growing, some trees have been dated at over three thousand years old. Fine grained, stable and containing a special oil which inhibits rot, it was quickly recognised by the pioneers as ideal for boat building and a host of other uses. This DVD follows in the wake of the old piners - the men who logged the Huon pine - and is enriched by interviews whose content dates back to the 1930s. Duration: 96 minutes
