OUR PROCESS - FROM HARVEST TO YOUR DOOR.
We are not just a retailer - we make or are very closely involved in the production of our products (with a little help from nature). All products are made from trees grown in Australia.
Step 1. Harvesting and Wood Collection
In most cases we harvest the trees ourselves. We have access to a large selection of invasive pine trees that are growing in native bushland reserves and have been tasked with removing these to aid our native bushland. The majority of our smaller wood slice products are produced from these trees.
Our other major source is of timber is from trees that have been felled for powerline clearing or that have come down in storms. We also work closely with a local mill who source sustainable and local timber.
Bottom line is we never cut down trees unless there is a good reason for it.
Step 2. Product Manufacturing
We make our small wood slice products in our workshop in Warburton. The aim of our manufacturing process is to balance the natural and unique beauty of timber with a quality product. We have invested in high quality machinery to produce the cleanest cuts and smoothest finishes whilst retaining the natural bark edge and unique shape of the timber.
While our workshop specialises in the smaller wood slices, our larger wood slices are custom cut by our local milling partner who, with the advantage of heavy machinery, professional equipment and an awesome team of workers, provide us with the raw pieces. We then carefully dry each piece (to reduce the chance of splitting) and do all finishing work in our workshop.
Step 3. Packaging
When you purchase from Stringybark Supplies, you can be sure your product will be packaged with care, because it is all done in house. We use quality packaging materials to ensure your purchase reaches you in the condition it left our shop.
