The Forest Stewardship Council promotes responsible management of the world’s forests, and The Lismore Timber Mill is proud to be an FSC-certified timber mill abiding by the council’s standards and eco-friendly timber requirements.
As FSC timber suppliers and wholesalers it is crucial we source timber responsibly, and consequently much of our sugar gum timber milling is FSC-certified. The Lismore Timber Mill has international experience in the timber industry and agribusiness qualifications which emphasise our understanding of the need for environmentally responsible timber harvesting. We believe in setting standards for eco-friendly and sustainable practices within the industry, not only because it is good for our business, but because it is also the right thing to do.
Working alongside the FSC ensures the council and The Lismore Timber Mill have an agreed understanding of responsible forestry and confirms our timber harvesting systems are balanced and lasting. Importantly, The Lismore Timber Mill and the FSC operate independently of each other. FSC certification does not come from the Forest Stewardship Council itself but rather from independent FSC-accredited auditors who assess operations before granting accreditation. This system ensures the FSC and businesses such as The Lismore Timber Mill are at arm’s lengths from each other, and emphasises the independence and integrity of the council and organisations seeking its certification.
FSC timber suppliers & wholesaler
The FSC and The Lismore Timber Mill also share common ground on recognising the importance of recycling to protect the world’s forests, and we are are committed recycled timber suppliers and wholesalers, particularly of timber from wharfs and other marine structures. We are also recycled timber suppliers and wholesalers of messmate, iron bark, tallowood, blackbutt, turpentine timber, stringybark, spotted gum and other species, including messmate.
The FSC has the motto “‘Forests For All Forever” and we stand alongside the council in promoting that message. FSC-certified timber milling is environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and, as we’re proving, economically viable.
