Trentwood & The Environment
Timber is a durable material which can be used in many ways as a fencing product, but if not grown sustainably or treated correctly, its longevity will be compromised. Substandard fencing materials not treated properly will need to be replaced more frequently, which undermines the effort to use timber in a sustainable way.
Trentwood Fencing takes environmental issues very seriously, which is why we only use timber that has been correctly treated to ensure long life and durability. All the fencing materials we use are supplied by Oxfordshire’s only fully certified member of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
What is the FSC?
The FSC is an international organisation whose sole purpose is to promote responsible management and sustainability of the world's forests.
Established in the mid 1990s, nearly 100 million hectors of forest covering 79 countries are certified according to FSC standards. Over 8000 companies have chain of custody certification. The Chain of custody (COC) certification provides evidence that timber originates from well-managed forests and helps consumers and traders make informed decisions about the timber they buy.
