Timber’s Versatility

Timber is one of the most environmentally friendly materials available today. A 100% renewable resource, it an extremely popular material. It creates zero waste as the offcuts from the Timber can be used for other purposes such as firewood alongside the sawdust being used as compost.

A durable material, it has thermal insulating properties that can reduce the energy use of homes making it an ideal option for many home projects. Once products that contain timber have completed their lifespan they will then decompose as part of the natural cycle, this releases their nutrients back into the ground. It is clear to see why timber is such a popular choice.

Sustainability Of Timber

Sustainable timber refers to timber that has been harvested responsibly. This ensures that there is no damage to the surrounding environment. A renewable material, timber is considered one of the most sustainable materials as it requires far less energy than other materials to process into a finished product.

In the UK there are two certification schemes that encourage users of wood and wooden products in knowing where the source of the wood being used came from and if it originates from sustainable sources. They are:

  1. The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC): The largest forest certification scheme, the PEFC encourages sustainable forest management. Established in the year 2000, it is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation and works to maintain and manage forests worldwide.
  2. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC): This membership association was established in 1990 promotes environmentally appropriate management of the world’s forests. It is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation.

If sustainably sourced, using timber can have positive environmental impacts.
