What is Myrtlewood?
Oregon Myrtlewood is a broadleaf evergreen native to Southwestern Oregon and Northwestern California. The Myrtle tree grows 60 to 120 feet in the wild. It is very slow growing putting on only 1 to 12 inches of growth during each of its first few years. They may take 80 to 120 years to reach full size. It is often multi-trunked, but can be kept pruned to a single trunk tree. When growing in the open it tends to have a dense, rounded, ‘gumdrop shape’. On a shady hillside it grows much taller and narrower. As a houseplant they can be pruned to fit nicely in small areas or indoors. Myrtlewood tolerates many conditions, but grows the best and fastest in deep soil with lots of compost, ample water and full sun. The color of the wood is often influenced by the minerals in the soil, which could be a factor in its popularity here on the Oregon coast. The colors range from blond to black with many shades of honey, browns, satiny grays, with reds and greens in between. Oregon Myrtlewood became popular for making gift items back in the early 1900’s. It is a hardwood which takes many finishes well. Oregon woodworkers have developed a small industry making handcrafted Myrtlewood products for visitors and residents of the area. less
