    […] the south-west coastal area is heavily forested. One of the tallest trees in the world, called karri, can be …


  1. Magnificent ancient trees, forest uniquely West Australian. Shame that 40% of it, 2000 square kms will be destroyed by logging from next year 2014, if the government cannot be convinced to stop. Highly endangered marsupial numbats, the last of Species and Family will become extinct. And probably endangered cockatoos as well, and many others. Karri and Jarrah forests are still being logged despite the industry continually running at a loss. Over 80% of the wood from our forests ends up as firewood, woodchips and railway sleepers. Our forests are worth more as habitat for wildlife, carbon stores and community heritage. Please Help by signing petition below. THANK YOU very much :-)

  2. Thank you, and I have added my signature. it is a crime not to protect the last remnants of precious forest. could you please tell me where they are proposing to log?

  3. Hello ….. My name is Huey and I am a builder with a carpentry background . I have a love for timber , in particular the Karri tree , hence my business name Karri Homes . I would like to design a business card using karri trees as a background and particularly like an image in this website which shows karri tree tops at sunset …. labelled ” Pemberton Karri tree silhouettes at sunset ” ( tourism W.A. ) I am writing to ask permission to use this image for my card background or a contact to somebody who can help me . I will put recognition to this on the back of my card and would be very grateful Thankyou Huey

    • Hello Huey,
      The karri trees sillouhette photo is one of the ones that Tourism WA makes available to use. I’m pretty sure you could use it on your business cards, but check the licensing info to be sure.

  4. Hi Bonny,
    Quick question: I know only some eucalypts are proned to losing limbs, do Karri trees fit in to that category?

    • Hi Ally, karri trees do lose their branches from time to time, but I don’t know how they compare to other eucalypts in that respect. Not really my area of expertise, sorry!

  5. As an arborist who climbs trees, I’d have to say I’m pleased they aren’t in Brisbane, considering their size :)

    To answer Ally’s question, all Eucalypts are prone to branch drop. The chance of it happening to the branch of a particular species is thought to be a function of its resin and density.

  6. Hi, I’m wondering how Karri here is pronounced. Is it similar to “Carrie” or does the first syllable sound like “Car”? Thanks!

  7. Hello Bonny or David,

    My partner and I are planning to move to Denmark (WA). We like to grow some Karri trees on our future property. Are there any publications that we can access or purchase?

    We have tented under the Karri trees in Heart Break Trail in Manjimup …..

    Des and Jill
