Radial Timber is committed to the sustainable sourcing, milling and sale of Victorian hardwoods, sourced only from plantation or temperate regrowth forests. We believe that old growth and rainforest timber should be preserved for future generations. It is company policy to plant 4 new trees for every single log we process.
The Future of Radial Timbers
It is Radial timber’s plan to become self sufficient and totally sustainable by managing saw log plantations of durable hardwoods in Gippsland. It has a 20 year plan to establish up to 1000 hectares of Yellow Stringybark, Southern Mahogany, and Spotted Gum pruned and thinned plantations.
The process of radial sawing was specifically designed to maximise the recovery of sawn timber from smaller logs. As such, radial sawing has a range of both environmental and technical benefits. These range from helping to make indigenous hardwood plantations more viable to maximising the yield of high value timber products from a log. This is a summary of the main environmental and technical benefits that stem from radial sawing:
