TRADA marks Grown in Britain Week with free download
Published: 16 October, 2013
To mark Grown in Britain Week, TRADA is making its new Wood Information Sheet (WIS), ‘Specifying British-grown timbers’, free to download from www.trada.co.uk for a limited period only.
Grown in Britain Week runs until October 20 and will see the forest wood sector show people the great things being done with wood. TRADA’s complementary new WIS is a comprehensive overview of the British timber market, the products available and their uses. It is accompanied by a series of highly informative datasheets on the various species, such as sycamore, oak, ash and spruce, with details of the distribution, properties, uses and special considerations.
“This new Wood Information Sheet will be a great help to designers and contractors in not only selecting the right timber species for the job, but also selecting the one that gives the most benefit to the UK forestry industry by specifically identifying those species that are grown in Britain,” said Charlie Law – BAM Construct UK and member of the UKCG Grown in Britain Task Group.
