Col Timbers is 100% Guaranteed, which is why we kiln-dry our wood to a moisture content of 8%. This process helps keep the wood in perfect balance with atmospheric conditions, thereby stabilising the timber and minimising movement or warping.
Timber is a sustainable and renewable resource. The more wood we use, the more forests we grow. Not only does wood bring warmth into your home, it’s also the best choice for the environment.
Our pine is sourced from local plantations that are FSC-certified. The FSC-Forestry Stewardship Council applies primarily to plantation forests and sawmills worldwide.
