Leading Certified Timber Suppliers

What is Certified Timber?

Valuing Sustainability & Eco-Friendly Building Supplies

Timber is quickly being regarded as a worldwide solution to climate change. While trees are a renewable resource it is crucial to responsibly source timber. Certified timber suppliers ensure that construction materials come from well-managed native forests and recycled sources.

As part of our commitment to supporting responsible native forest management in Australia, Gowan Lea Timbers has taken steps to ensure that our certified timber is planted, grown, and harvested in accordance with the strictest codes of practice, consistent with the world’s leading environmental standards.

Why Choose Certified Timber?

When Planning Your Next Project, Choose Certified Timber

When it comes to choosing timber for your next project, it is important to consider where the timber has come from and whether it has been certified. Certified timber has been grown and harvested in an environmentally sustainable way, ensuring that our forests are able to continue to provide this valuable resource for future generations. Timber from certified sources is also more likely to be of a high quality, meaning that it is less likely to warp or split over time.
