Due to the position of the Victorian Government to stop logging by the end of 2023 - rather than previously promised in 2030 - our access to Victorian Ash is ending soon. Possible replacements are light coloured Tasmanian Oak or imported American Oak.All Victorian Ash timber was harvested from re-growth forests on a 80-year rotation. Up to 50% of the weight of kiln dried Victorian Ash is stored carbon. Our supplier Australian Sustainable Hardwood (ASH) is third party audited for Australian Forest Standard (AFS), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) and the Environmental Management System ISO14001.
