Timber merchants

All timber used in construction should be accredited through one of the recognised organisations like the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) that shows a ‘chain of custody’ for wood. This will ensure that the wood comes from well managed, sustainable forests.

The following organisations can supply FSC and / or locally sourced timber
