Sawn Timber

Sawn Timber edged / unedged, KD, FSC® certified

All items earmarked with „FSC®“ are FSC®-certified woods which come from well managed forests. FSC® stands for ‘Forest Stewardship Council’, i.e. creditable certification as required by leading environmental organizations such as greenpeace and WWF. Control along the chain of custody is being done by independant, third-party auditors.

Uses (Application) of Species Offered
As our policy is to support best practise in forest management, we also accept species of “no name”, so called lesser known species. These timbers are frequently being used in their country of origin but did not make it so far to Europe. This is mainly because the volume traded is too small or the producers have not been able to offer sizes and grades as specified by the market. Good example of this are Mexican species such as Chakte Kok.

Under “Wood Species” you find a colourful summary of most of our timbers. By ticking on a selected species, you will get its name and more useful informations about it. Those informations are made public in German language only – but we are gradually translating the German version into English and later on into French, too.
