News

Our news page is about relevant topics that affect our industry including illegal logging and sustainability. You can read more on sustainability here and the impact of false documentation from timber suppliers.

As members of the Timber Trade Federation and Construction products association, we are continually updated with the latest news and concerns from the world's timber trade including the latest scams on illegal trade. We are passionate about making sure our trees that are harvested are replanted in a ratio of at least 3 new trees for every one cut down to provide not only flooring but any timber whatever its use. We hope you find this section of our web site informative and helpful in your search for an ethical, professional and sustainable wood floor supplier.

Should you need anything else, please also visit our Technical Library page or call our friendly team of experts on 01666 504015
