Since we don't trade in timber we are not closely in touch with short-term fluctuations in the market. Company websites suggest hardwood poles are readily available, but website data may not necessarily be updated regularly. You will find suppliers if you write 'hardwood poles Australia' or similar wording in your browser and we suggest you contact the companies concerned. Regarding sustainability, hardwood poles are mostly sourced from State Forests which operate under strict, legislated guidelines. Details are set out on the relevant government websites, for example in NSW you will find forest management details here: https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/forestry/managing-forests.Forest management
