Building with plantation pine is good for the environment in so many ways:

  • It is renewable and fast-growing.
  • It is a natural carbon storage bank drawing carbon out of our atmosphere.
  • It has a lower embodied energy than many other building materials such as concrete, steel or plastic.

Product Responsibility

Timberlink manufacturing facilities operate machine stress grading combined with verification of the structural properties using static testing and continual monitoring of test data. To make sure our products perform as required, we run stringent internal product compliance systems, particularly in regard to structural and preservative-treated timber compliance, to minimise risk to the community from non-conforming product.

All mills operate output testing regimes including physical testing of structural properties with continual monitoring of test data.
