Australian made wood fibre
We call it 'our wood fibre' because we're proud of its origin; it's made right here in Australia. AWF manufactures thermo mechanically reﬁned wood ﬁbre for the professional market, be it horticulture, erosion control, revegetation or animal bedding industries.
Our fibre is dried, compressed and packaged in convenient sized bales, making it easy to store, transport and handle.
Thermo mechanical refinement of virgin wood chip produces a naturally durable, high performing and bio-secure product. Our manufacturing process refines the wood into long and short fibres under extreme temperature delivering an end product that can absorb more than 11 times its own weight in water and is free from seeds and pathogens. The phyto-sanitisation of our fibre not only makes it ideal for export but also for use in horticulture and revegetation applications.
Thermo mechanically refined wood fibre has excellent water holding capacity which provides optimal conditions for the propagation of seeds. It contributes carbon for the soil, moisture for germinating seeds and porosity for developing roots. In a nut shell,
it's naturally good for growth.
Our raw material, Pine and Eucalyptus chip, is bought in accordance with the relevant AFS (Australian Forestry Standard), PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) Standards and the AFS policy for the association of organisations with AFS.
Australian Wood Fibre has in place appropriate procedures to deliver an ethical product that complies with the chain of custody (CoC) Standards and enables our labelling of our products to reassure our customers they will not be supplied any “illegal wood”.
