We source hardwood timber decking that meets the Worldwide European Standard as below:
All timber imported into the European Union needs to come from verifiable legal sources. European buyers that place timber or timber products on the market have to show due diligence.You can do this on the basis of long-term contracts, or separately for every container you ship. In addition the EUTR forces operators to tracetheir products back to the source. This means that when suppliers supply legal timber, but cannot provide well-documented guarantees of legality, they will not be able to supply the European Union market.
Our Response to Deforestation: Support of Trees that Count in New Zealand
At Tough Decks we believe it is important to give back to the community and the planet for future generations. We support Trees that Count by donating money for the planting of native trees in the Bay of Plenty region. For every log that is used for decking we plant 5 trees as a replacement to the planet.
