Timber Sources and the Environment

woodlandFor centuries timber has been one of the most important and widely used of the world's natural resources. There is increasing public awareness of the need to maintain this valuable resource, to ensure that it is not used in a manner detrimental to the environment, and as part of this awareness to ask questions about the source of timber.

In accordance with our long established policy, and as a general rule, timber used within the manufacture of SHS bridges, is obtained from responsible sources.

In many cases we are able to provide evidence in the form of chain of custody certification. For example, we can supply bridges utilising timber from well managed forests and other controlled sources independently certified to the principles and criteria set out by the Forest Stewardship Council®.

We will be pleased to provide further information on timber sources and environmental impact, including advice on designing to meet enviromental criteria.
