– SR Wood’s Vision Statement from 1995

SR Wood has long been a pioneer in the wood industry, using sustainable and renewable principles to drive our philosophy and practices in sourcing and manufacturing.

We are committed to providing high quality architectural wood products, but not at the expense of the environment.

Managed Forests

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

FSC Certified Forests

We offer over 100 cuts and species which are FSC certified, providing independent third-party certification that our products come from forests managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.

Rapidly Renewable Plantations

Our reconstituted veneers are sourced exclusively from rapidly renewable tree plantations, allowing for the appearance of exotic veneers while protecting tropical rainforests.

Rapidly Renewable Farms

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.

Sustainable Harvesting

All of our natural cork material is sourced from regions where sustainable cork 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.
