At British Hardwoods we have always been strict in sourcing timber only from accredited suppliers, sawmills or timber merchants across Europe, North America and Canada that are either certified by PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) or FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). As well as being mindful of our timber supply, we also recycle all our timber waste and are totally self-sufficient with the Talbotts C4 Boiler producing green heat, and by utilising 10 tonnes of wood shavings per week, we achieve a zero net gain in CO2 with no fossil fuels burnt whatsoever. We are proud to employ a local workforce of hardworking people and offer a rolling programme of apprenticeships which train and develop local youngsters wishing to start a career in the wood industry.
