It is a truly renewable source and therefore is great for the environment. Timber can be re-used again and again and is a naturally renewable source, meaning it is unlikely we will ever run out of timber. It is very easily recycled and therefore timber is a highly recommended material for this reason.


One of the best properties that timber has is its durability and easy maintenance. Almost all timber products and materials are easy to maintain and therefore it is used in a variety of different industries. Due to timber’s durability, it can also be used for structural and building purposes as it does not rot or damage easily. It is also easy to build a structure with timber compared to other materials and therefore if you are tight for time, it might be a good idea to consider using timber for parts of your project.
