As original woodworkers we seek usable timber for our craft in the most efficient way possible. There are many statements made these days that make claims about sustainability and efficiency, carbon footprints and environmental impact. However, we seek to live and operate by these principles while producing timber from the area in which we live. That area is extensive so mileage is greater, a factor that can’t be avoided. It is still better to buy timber within the North of Scotland than import it from further afield.
Much is reported about afforestation around the world but the UK as a whole has an unenviable record in wasting a natural resource and this starts from the ordinary person in the street (or garden?) who considers he/she wants greater light in and cuts ‘some old Oak’ down that was otherwise a nuisance. The short term attitude to trees is appalling in the UK today and most ‘local’ hardwoods that are cut down goes to waste as firewood, if anything at all. People will always want timber for diverse purposes so we should be as frugal as possible in using what we have available. Help us do that.
