There have been some big changes, but our commitment to timber remains the same.

There’s been a little gap in our updates to the TTN website. The reason is an exciting one, Timber Trader News has been sold to Timber Media Australasia Pty Ltd and is now publishing bimonthly with expanded issues.

The new management team is headed by John Halkett, a lifelong stalwart of the timber sector with the rest of the management team also coming from timber backgrounds.

The engineering content and industry news stories you love will remain the same but now the magazine has additional forestry content and more on the economics of the sector to help you keep abreast of upcoming changes in the market.

Remember TTN is your industry news source. If your company has an event, product or milestone we should know about, email us so we can share it. Let us know if there are issues you would like us to cover, too. To support the future of TTN, subscribe here or contact Campbell McInnes about advertising in the new and expanded magazine or online.

Below is John’s welcome note from the first issue under TMA ownership.

Publisher’s note

This is to let you know that Timber Trader News (TTN) is now under new management. To start, a big thank you to Ian Brooks and his team from Paragon Media who have managed TTN for the past five years during some turbulent and difficult times for both the timber industry and for publishing.

Our new management team consists of a specialist group with strong timber industry connections and experience, editorial ability and supporting disciplines. We are delighted that Donyale Harrison, who has been the editor of TTN for the past five years, will continue in that role.

It is our intention to produce an edition of TTN every two months. In doing so, we are planning to expand our editorial coverage across the diversity of the timber supply chain, related manufacturing, technical, engineering, policy and advocacy activities. This will involve reorganising and beefing up the content of TTN. We are earnestly hoping to retain our existing readership and attract new readers and business support.

We sincerely trust that the timber and related industries will continue to support the magazine as we seek to expand our editorial coverage and navigate the challenges of 2023 and beyond. Join us for the ride.

John Halkett, Publisher
