Environmental protection

Nowadays, many timber producers around the world are certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or similar associations.  We recommend that you notify us at the time of your original inquiry, if you require environmental certification for your order.

About 60% of the wood producers in Europe are certified by the FSC, but forests in other regions, such as Southeast Asia, have a much lower level of certification. Furthermore, certification is unavailable on some types of wood. Please feel free to inquire on the types available with FSC or similar certification.

In some regions, e.g. Southeast Asia, are moving towards certification at a slower rate.  The result is in these regions certification is still at a relatively low level.  Therefore, some types of wood can not be sourced from certified forests.
Developments in the area of certification are subject to constant change; therefore we request that you contact us to request up to date information about which species are currently available from certified farmers.
This is the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification of our main wood supplier.
