A simple question which has confused many over an extended period. A question with somewhat simple answers, but like many things, the deeper you dig the more complicated things can become. In the world of veneer, Ash and Oak are more different than it would appear from the above explanations. Veneer manufacturers and distributors are less concerned with which state the timber was sourced from or, for that matter, the actual species used to produced the veneer as evidenced by the fact that Eucalyptus nitens and Eucalyptus viminalis and others are commonly used to produce what is referred to as Ash and Oak. They are focused on the appearance of the veneer — specifically the colour. In general terms, Victorian Ash and Tasmanian Oak are light-coloured, ranging from straw to a light pinkish brown.

Victorian ash is the trade name of two large Victorian hardwood species, alpine ash and mountain ash, that can be used for timber framing, internal applications and furniture. Victorian ash should not be confused with Tasmanian oak which comprises three hardwood species: alpine ash, mountain ash and messmate and has quite a wide variation in colour mix. Importantly it should also be noted that Victorian ash is not susceptible to lyctid borer whilst Tasmanian oak is. Victorian ash is mainly available in Victoria, Tasmania and NSW, with limited availability to other parts of Australia. It has a course texture. The heartwood ranges from pale pink to yellowish brown and a walnut colour can be achieved by steaming with ammonia. The heartwood is often indistinguishable in colour from the softwood.
