Our Commitment to the Environment


Davids Timber believes that timber is the most environmentally friendly building material and as such, we are committed ensuring the longevity of this resource.

When you buy treated pine products from Davids Timber, you can be confident that you are using high quality renewable plantation pine specifically grown for timber manufacture.

Plantation grown treated pine is the optimum building material; it is natural, attractive and extremely versatile. Using treated pine is the best choice for your outdoor project and the best choice for the environment.
