Safeguarding the environment
We are very aware of the importance of ensuring that our suppliers obtain their timber from sustainably managed forest resources. Such resources ensure that timber remains one of the most renewable, natural and environmentally friendly of standard building materials. For this reason we are suppliers of FSC and PEFC, certified timber.
In March 2013 it became law to comply with the European Union Timber Regulations (EUTR). This makes placing illegally harvested timber or products that are made from this timber illegal to sell in the EU. At Chilworth Timber we follow all of the regulations some of which include ensuring that all of our Timber is purchased from FSC and PEFC certified suppliers and ensuring records are retained regarding the purchase and sale of our timber.
