Euc. spp. ironwood timber mill near Taree Australia Review

The information on this website involves the truth, fair comment, honest opinion, public interest, and/or fair reporting on public proceedings.

There is a timber mill that is located near Taree NSW at Pampoolah. They seem to offer various products, such as Euc. spp. ironwood timber decking, timber stair treads, firewood, etc. These seem to include various types of timber, such as spotted gum, mahogany, iron bark, blackbutt timber, recycled timber, hardwood timber, etc.

As at the search date (indicated above) it seems that the eligibility for this domain does not exist, as "Ironwood Antique Timbers" with BN6271054 has lapsed and a significant time ago.

Ironwood Antique Timbers etc

The image above is an extract showing that they advertise as "Ironwood Australia" and with no ACN on their website ironwood.com.au. The ASIC search undertaken seems to show that they are not "Ironwood Australia"? It also seems that they should publish their ACN so that the public can readily identify them?

In the image above, you can get some idea of how many trees they have used and continue to use. They have cleared some trees and have then burnt them. This fire above seems to be waste from the mill being burnt. How environmentally friendly?

More truck loads of trees arriving to be used. They advertise that they plant a tree for everyone used (see below, screenshot 10/11/20):

There seems to be three properties in Crows Nest Road that are related to Chris Swadling and/or timber mills, these being at:

35 Crows Nest Road Pampoolah NSW 2430
45 Crows Nest Road Pampoolah NSW 2430
46 Crows Nest Road Pampoolah NSW 2430

Below is a satellite image showing part of the Ironwood mill:

In the above images, note the significant clearing of native vegetation. Also the plantation, now seemingly put in place of the native vegetation that was cleared. I don't see how clearing the native vegetation, replacing it with with a plantation, and bringing in numerous truck loads of fallen trees can be "planting a tree for every tree we use"? Please someone correct me if I'm wrong?

And shouldn't their "Future Forests" be more accurately called "Future Timber"?

We have sent them a request for clarification, but no response has been recieved to date?

In relation to advertising, such as “green” claims, it is my understanding that if a business make such claims in advertising etc, then they are also expected to be able and willing to substantiate the claims.

For example, “Any statement representing your products or services should be true, accurate and able to be substantiated. “ See document False or misleading statements | ACCC and document Green marketing and the Australian Consumer Law | ACCC.

Ironwood Australia

The business name Ironwood Australia was cancelled in 2016, according to the ASIC website records. However, that does not seem to have stopped it from continuing to be used. Historical ABN records online show that the ABN for Ironwood Australia and the ABN for Ironwood Taree Pty Ltd are not the same. So, it seems, that these are two seperate entities?

Chris Swadling

It seems that Chris Swadling has a range of involvement, including being an owner or part owner of some of the property, and holding various positions or roles. He has stated that he is Managing Director of Ironwood Australia in email. I have no idea of how he (or anyone) can be Managing Director of Ironwood Australia, as I can not find any record of "Ironwood Australia" being currently registered, as either a business name, a company, or a trademark in Australia?

Ian Wingrove

It seems that Ian Wingrove has stated that he is General Manager of Ironwood Australia. For example, this appears in online articles and email. I have no idea of how he (or anyone) can be General Manager of Ironwood Australia, as I can not find any record of "Ironwood Australia" being currently registered, as either a business name, a company, or a trademark in Australia?

Stephen Bromhead

It seems that local State member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead, has had various involvement. Such as in relation to funding (for example) for sheds for Ironwood Taree Pty Ltd (I think?). This appears online and on various websites, including his own, in newspaper articles, etc. However, he uses a different name for the company?

Euc. spp. ironwood timber

Seems to be used at a timber mill located outside Taree NSW at Pampoolah. It seems that they may be able to provide reclaimed recycled hardwood timber, and for commercial runs, including to exact specifications.

Ironwood is a common name for many woods or plants that have a reputation for hardness. I have numerous Australian ironwood trees growing, mainly for carbon storage. These include a few varieties, including Sydney Blue Gum, Ironbark, Blackbutt, etc.

Roads and Maritime Service

It seems that they have been able to (for example) obtain or perform work etc for the RMS.

I unreservedly apologise to anyone if they have been offended etc, as that was not my intention. This website is based upon contextual truth, jutification, honest opinion, fair comment, and/or triviality. The Terms of Use also cover this. Also, and for example, it is my understanding that Ironwood Taree Pty Ltd is to recieve various government grants of public money, and in excess of $4M. I believe there is a Public interest in the allocation, spending, etc of those government or public funds and/or their actions, conduct, etc.
