Fall Timber stocks timber from FSC® certified and other sustainable sources.
FSC® certification shows that the forest of origin has been independently inspected and evaluated according to principles and criteria agreed by the Forest Stewardship Council®. There is a monitoring and tracking system, known as ‘chain of custody’, in place through every stage in the supply chain, scrutinized by independent certification bodies. The FSC® logo identifies timber as originating from a forest, which is managed according to internationally, agreed standards covering social, environmental and economic aspects of forest management.
FSC® provides an incentive in the marketplace for good forestry practice.
You can learn more about FSC® by visiting their website at http://www.fsc-uk.org/.
Did you know that Timber is the worlds most carbon efficient and easily renewable source of building materials?? This is because trees lock away harmful carbon from the atmosphere whilst releasing valuable oxygen which is critical for other life forms to survive.
When a tree is felled the carbon remains locked in the tree. So using wood as a building material helps to reduce carbon in the atmosphere.he carbon is only released if the timber is destroyed by burning.
Trees lock away most carbon when they are young and so responsibly farmed timber from tree farms where trees are felled at an optimal age and instantly replaced means that we can maximize the carbon efficiency of the forests used as part of the timber industry.
Wood is the only truly sustainable material on this planet: we can grow as much timber as we need, in well-managed forests. Visit http://www.woodforgood.com/ for more information.
