Timber is one of the most sustainable building materials available and is known as the ultimate renewable. The forests that produced the timber floors, fences and frames that you find in most homes are continuing to regrow and produce more timber products every day.
Forestry Corporation is the largest manager of commercial native and plantation forests in NSW, producing timber for a range of purposes. The timber produced from Forestry Corporation pine plantations alone is enough to construct a quarter of the homes built in Australia each year.
Timber is one of the most renewable resources available and, much like the trees that produce it, the demand for timber continues to grow. This is why it's so important that we source timber from well managed forests like State forests, where every time a tree is harvested, another is regrown in its place to ensure we continue supplying timber for today and for the future.

Purchasing sustainable timber
When purchasing wood products, look for certified sustainable timber, like timber from NSW State forests, so you know the forest it has been sourced from is managed responsibly in line with strict environmental standards.
