The Best Choice for our Environment
"Wood plays a major role in combating climate change... Greater use of wood products will stimulate the expansion of Europe's forests and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by substituting for fossil fuel intensive products."
European Commission's DG Enterprise.
Timber is our most environmentally sound construction material.
Severn Valley Woodworks has a strict Manufacturing Philosophy sourcing its timbers from well managed and responsible suppliers who are committed to active replantation programmes in the forests they harvest.
The European timber industry, which supplies the overwhelming majority of our timber, has overseen a steady expansion of Europe's forests over the past 60 years. Between 1990 and 2000 the European forest area grew by 30% and this growth continues, as only 65% of the annual growth is harvested.
Please see our Sourcing Timber and Chain of Custody policies for more details.
The industrial preservative pre-treatments of the majority of our timbers help to ensure they will have the longest service life possible to protect against all forms of fungal and insect attack. The latest generation of wood preservative we utilise, Tanalith® E, is based on copper triazole technology. The copper is derived from recycled resources and is combined with dual biodegradable triazoles, that are commonly used to protect many of the food crops we eat.
