FSC® wood

From fences to façade cladding, from pergolas to carports, there is a wide variety of wooden garden projects for you to take on. Do you prefer to work with wood that is certified to be sustainably harvested? Then you can use FSC® wood. This label gives you peace of mind that you are working with ecologically responsible wood.

What is FSC® wood?

FSC® or Forest Stewardship Council® is an international non-profit organisation founded in 1993 by forest owners, timber and paper companies, social movements and environmental organisations such as Greenpeace and WWF. The mission of the organisation? To promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests.

Why choose FSC® wood?
The founders thus showed that they were not against the clear cutting of the rainforest, but that logging must be done in accordance with strict rules. A wholesaler who uses an ecological and social label also shows its customers that it complies with specific rules. The more efficiently trees are felled, the better new trees will start growing. In addition, FSC® is also encouraging the construction of hospitals, schools and even housing projects. FSC® wood gives you the certainty that the wood has been produced sustainably.
Jadimex sells FSC® wood in addition to other ecological alternatives.

Why choose FSC® wood?

Cities and municipalities have, for a number of years, been required to work with FSC® wood, which is also becoming increasingly popular among private individuals. For a wood trading company to be allowed to sell FSC® wood, it is subjected to an annual evaluation. If you are specifically looking for FSC® wood, the only way to make sure is to ask for the supplier's Chain of Custody number.

This COC number can be checked on the FSC® website. A label on the wood is not a guarantee, but an invoice clearly stating that the wood is FSC® certified and the seller's COC number is. The supply of FSC® wood is limited, so you will generally pay slightly more than for other tropical hardwood species. The primary purpose of FSC® wood is to certify that the entire process has taken place in an ecologically and socially responsible manner.
