Earth Friendly

Back in 1995, SR Wood committed itself to be environmentally responsible, long before the building industry realized that green could be cool.

All of our natural CraftWood® veneers are derived from managed forests where sustainability practices preserve the natural ecosystem, protect endangered wildlife, and promote the rebirth of new timber growth.

We offer natural CraftWood® and Friendly Harvest™ wood veneer which is FSC® Certified, providing independent third-party certification that our wood comes from forests managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.

Our Friendly Harvest® series is sourced exclusively from rapidly renewable tree plantations, allowing for the appearance of exotic veneers while protecting tropical rainforests.

Our bamboo veneer comes from plants which grow to maturity in less than four years. Harvesting is done by hand and is limited to the stalk allowing for the root system to sprout new shoots the following rainy season. We exclusively use Mao Zhu Bamboo because this species is not consumed by the panda. 

All of our natural CraftCork material is sourced from regions where sustainable harvesting methods have been used since the 13th century. The cork is peeled from the trees every ten years, allowing the trees to live 500 to 800 years.
