What Makes Narangba Timbers Sustainable?

If there’s one thing we value at Narangba Timbers, it’s sustainable timber.
By choosing responsibly harvested timber, we not only reduce our carbon emissions but allow for a finished product that effortlessly combines aesthetic and strength. But what makes Narangba Timbers sustainable? Here’s a rundown on what makes us the best choice for ethically harvested timber. 

We source our timber from ethical suppliers

Because we pride ourselves on sustainable harvesting, it should be no surprise that we only source our products from local and ethical timber suppliers.

Many of our timbers are available from certified responsible sources such as Baywood –  a long-time partner and supplier of Narangba Timbers.

In using the latest automated scanning, grading, docking, and machining equipment, Baywood has been instrumental in ensuring our supply is not only sustainable but the best in the game.

We abide by harvesting regulations

At Narangba Timbers, we are subject to the National Forest Policy Statement of 1992, a national government that provides for ethical and sustainable management of timber. We also abide by the Code of Practice for Native Forest Timber Production on State Lands, which was established by the Queensland Government in 2007.

Both of these policies outline how timber suppliers are supposed to harvest their resources.
But what does this mean for our harvesting practices?

As a responsible timber supplier, we harvest our timber in state native forestries, otherwise defined as “state forest areas.” These areas are maintained and monitored on a regular basis,  and harvesting is completed carefully and meticulously. 

Our harvesting process also means that for every tree that is taken down, another is replanted.
With Narangba Timbers, trees grow to maturity and the cycle is repeated, over and over, with no loss of trees or forest land.


Why choose ethically sourced timber?

When trees aren’t harvested responsibly, the overall output of carbon increases dramatically and we are left with a higher abundance of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Put simply, we cannot survive on this planet without forests. By practising ethical timber harvesting, we are helping our forests to regulate the global climate and produce the oxygen we need to survive.

Forests absorb nearly 40 percent of the fossil-fuel emissions humans produce, which is why we see it as a step in the right direction to harvest our trees responsibly.
