Wood Awex are an unusual type of wattle which grow in the forests of Western Australia.
Wood is a common ingredient in many Australian cooking oils and in some Western Australian beers.
Wood can be used as a preservative in products such as barbecue sauce, but not as a substitute for meat.
Wood Aweens are not edible.
Wood wattle can be found in Western Australia and in parts of the United States.
In Western Australia, they can be harvested by hand or with a saw.
Wood Wagons are the largest of the wattle types.
They can be up to 50cm long, with a thick and tough bark.
They are found in all regions of the state.
They make up around 25 per cent of the total wood supply in Western Australian forests.
There are approximately 20,000 species of Wood Wagon in Western Victoria.
They live in the trees for up to 20 years.
There is a lot of competition for their limited wood supply and there are some very strict rules for how much wood can be removed and stored in the forest.
Woodwags are usually found in the western forests, which include the Wampunna, the North Shore, the Southern Highlands and the Blue Mountains.
They have very few predators in the wild and have been known to be very friendly to animals.
They feed mainly on plants and other invertebrates.
There’s no evidence that they have any special ability to resist diseases.
Wood Wags are sometimes known as ‘pile worms’.
Woodwag bushfires are a common occurrence in Western and Northern Australia.
Most woodwags, whether native to the forests or introduced, are nocturnal, which means they are not able to fly.
However, there are a few species of woodwag which can become active at night.
These animals will use the energy of the sun to fuel their wagging for up as many hours as they can.
This behaviour is usually followed by a light display, when they move and jump around, and occasionally by the emergence of a few adult animals.
The Wood Wag is one of the most common of the woodwaggies in Western WA.
There were approximately 8,000 wood wag species in Western Western Australia in 2018.
More than 80 per cent were native to Western Australia or were introduced.
A Wood Wag’s bark is typically hard, brown or grey and has a slightly hairy texture.
Its leaves are up to 1cm long and are typically up to 3cm long.
They usually have a black or brown stripe down their back, or a single dark band across the middle of the upper surface of the lower surface of their head.
Wood will also have a darker spot on its underside, which looks like a hole in the bark.
Wood has many uses.
The bark can be dried for fuel or used in the manufacture of leather and rope.
In the winter, it can be hung up to dry.
Wood was also used for building materials and wood products in the 19th century.
Today, the timber industry is dependent on the wood from the wood wags for its timber supply.
They’re also the primary source of wood for the industry.
