Sustainable timber refers to timber that has been harvested responsibly from well-managed forests that are continuously replenished and ensures that there is no damage to the surrounding environment, or to native flora and fauna.  Once a tree gets close to being fully grown, this is when a younger tree will sequester carbon quicker than an older tree.  By managing forests in this way, it ensure the carbon sequestering is maximised. This management is audited each year and why our new timber comes with PEFC certification. 

Timber has a significantly lower embodied carbon footprint compared to other mainstream construction materials. This is due to the minimal processing required, even when accounting for the process of laminating (glulam or cross-laminated timber) which is generally required to create structural timber products.

If sustainably sourced, using timber can have an additional positive environmental impact because trees absorb carbon dioxide through photosynthesis and lock it away as carbon, thus removing it from the atmosphere. This phenomenon is called sequestration and can essentially offset the processing and transportation energy associated with timber products. Therefore, timber can be considered a carbon-negative material.
