If you are looking for a building material that is kinder to the environment – choose timber. Wood is one of the most sustainable building materials when it has been derived from a sustainably managed forest where re-generation is taken seriously. At Mortlock Timber, we support the movement towards world-wide improvements in sustainability and re-generation standards for timber harvesting.
Produced sustainably with high quality standards, many timber products – particularly hardwoods – have a long lifetime of greater than 50 years. They often require little energy to maintain and preserve and can be recycled and repurposed in other buildings or projects at the end of their life.
According to Planet Ark (Make it wood), responsibly sourced wood can play a significant role in tackling climate change. Wood stores carbon, is renewable and has lower embodied energy than many other materials. The energy to produce rough sawn timber is also much more efficient than many alternative materials such as steel, concrete and brick. What’s more, timber has natural insulating properties, making it an energy efficient choice over materials such as steel, aluminium and concrete.
