This Ironbark tree produced  1 strainer posts,  10 fenceposts, 1tonne of firewood,  a large quantity of bark used as kindling (could have been cut into sheets and used for roofing a rustic shed) and a large quantity of  branches which were used for rustic furniture making. All of the remaining tree crown was bundled into Fascines and used to promote healing in some erosion affected gullies on the property. End products included 3 large rustic chairs and 2 sidetables. The tree has since re-sprouted and will continue to sequester carbon into the future.

Further uses for this tree could include – hedging, rakes, brooms, decorative framings, hurdles, peaframes and charcoal to name a few.
