In 2008 we launched the SNR brand to emphasise the benefit to the environment of using our timber. Timber is carbon neutral and one of the most sustainable resources the planet possesses. As the world becomes more environmentally aware the size of our carbon footprint takes on a greater importance. The use of our timber has a much smaller carbon footprint than imported timber because of our adjacency to the markets that we service.
