Common Name(s): Mulga
Scientific Name: Acacia aneura
Comments: A very heavy hardwood growing in dry regions of Australia. A small tree or shrub, the wood is usually used for turned objects or small decorative items. The wood is believed to have poisonous properties, and for this reason aboriginals used the wood for spear heads. At the very least, the wood has been shown to cause skin irritation, and splinters of the wood can cause lesions.
