Where possible Ash Carpentry uses FSC-certified timber and materials.
The Forest Stewardship Council is a world-wide, non-profit, non-governmental organisation.
It promotes the responsible growing, harvesting and on-going replanting of timber.
FSC is supported by Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, and WWF International.
Buying timber with the FSC label helps you to say ‘No’ to the destruction of the world’s forests and ‘Yes’ to responsibly-produced timber and wood products. Timber carrying an FSC label can be traced back to the well-managed forest it came from.
Those forests, and all the stages in the timber’s journey to a builders merchant, have been independently checked and given separate certificates. You can track timber back to the forest producer, by following this chain of FSC certificates - the ‘chain of custody’- using the certificate numbers.
This unique system makes sure your timber comes from a well-managed source.
