Did you know we only supply timber that has been sourced locally from sustainable sources in Scotland? Usually with a 50 mile radius of where we are based in Fife.
Timber is a renewable and recyclable resource which unfortunately had been greatly underused and wasted much due to imported timber. The hardwood industry is left mainly to a few large continental or English firms who send their salesmen to scour the land searching for the very best trees to export and process outside Scotland. Some of these products are then re-imported as prime grade timber or veneers. The rest of our timber is deemed "waste" or valueless, trees that have graced our land for hundreds of years are even dumped in landfill sites.
At Scottish Wood we only supply quality locally sourced sustainable timber that has been harvested responsibly from well managed forests that are continuously replenished or logs felled due to damage, disease, wind etc) ensuring the stability of our local woodlands and wood supply. By buying local, sustainably produced wood you also get all of the benefits of naturally beautiful, solid wood while knowing that you're giving something back.
