Is Abodo Wood Sustainable?


Sustainability remains on the forefront for many eco-minded homeowners, and Abodo timbers are sustainably sourced from New Zealand, the ultimate base for sustainable forestry. The rich soil & high annual rainfall ensure rapid renewal of the FSC® certified plantation forests, making it the perfect source for raw material. Free from toxins such as Chrome and Arsenic, Abodo are constantly looking for safer options to treat their timber that enhance them in a way that respects the environment and are safe to handle. Their 30/30 principle means that for each tree milled, they ensure it provides more than 30 years of service – which is as long as it takes to grow a replacement tree.

Why builders like working with Abodo?


Vulcan timber is thermally modified (which means “pre-shrunk”), resulting in enhanced stability and durability which is perfect for the hot coastal climate in Queensland.

The finger-jointed Vulcan Nexus cladding allows for varied set lengths, including long 6m pieces, reducing timber waste during installation. Made from thermally modified softwood, laminated for strength, Abodo’s Vulcan timber supports longer spans and overhangs without concerns about buckling. Its low level of movement makes it a trustworthy choice for exposed timber garage doors, and other applications. Another plus is that it does not leach tannins, protecting render, exposed concrete or even paving stones.
