Recycled and Reclaimed Timbers

AusTimber stock old bridge and wharf pylons and beam sections, railway sleepers, etc. that have been removed from their original structures. 

As an alternative to 2nd hand or recycled products, we also stock "reclaimed" timbers that are actually even more sustainable than recycled timbers.

With an ever increasing demand for sustainable timbers and a decreasing supply of 'recycled' timbers, the old buildings that contain many years of the country's fabulous history are being torn down as the continued demand makes it more attractive to demolish these old buildings for their "recycleable" value. With a finite number of these old sites left in our cities, each one lost can never be replaced.
By specifying "recycled" timber in the name of sustainability can in reality, be an erroneous action.

At AusTimber, we believe a far better approach is to use 'reclaimed' timbers which look like 'new' timbers but are cut from logs salvaged from trees being removed from suburban construction and roadside clearing sites which would otherwise end up as firewood or garden mulch (a terrible waste of a valuable resource) and utilizing them for more practical and sustainable use, thereby creating a higher valued product and lessening the demand on recycled and higher grade timbers.

We are the only company in Australia salvaging such logs on a commercial scale and turning them into higher valued timber products.
 

This helps contribute to better use of Australia's forest resources which by the way, are actually among the most sustainably managed forests in the world, and giving all of our forest products the real value that they truly deserve.
