FSC® & Timber Policy

As a manufacturer of products using natural materials, Forest Garden Ltd is fully committed to using the timber it buys in a responsible and efficient way.

We acknowledge that sustainability and the environment have emerged as key issues in the forestry industry.

Forest Garden is positioned to influence both supply and demand in the market, and thus contribute to the development of environmental solutions in the forestry sector. Forest Garden fully supports those responsible forest management practices that promote forest sustainability and result in long-term environmental, social and economic benefit.

We are able to demonstrate our commitment to responsible forestry through our certification to the FSC® Chain of Custody Certification. Forest Garden gives purchasing preference to certified forest products. We define certified forest products as those materials that originate in forests that have been independently audited and certified as well managed by a credible,independent third party.

Forest Garden will ensure that the supply of FSC® material is monitored and recorded, providing absolute traceability throughout the manufacturing process. We are committed to the continuous improvement in the level of FSC® material sourced. Forest Garden also endeavours to wherever possible; source non-round wood materials from FSC® approved sources.

Forest Garden does not procure material from controversial or illegal harvested sources, from areas where customary or civil rights are violated, from uncertified high conservation value/old growth forest, from forests being converted to plantations, or from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted.
