Welcome to South African Timber Resources

South Africa has a well managed and thriving timber industry that brings more than 150,000 jobs to remote and rural communities throughout the country.  The timber is provided from managed forests to minimize the impact on the environment and there are more trees planted every year than harvested.

While timber is a significant export for South Africa, it is more commonly used right here at home.  Timber is used across several industries, construction of homes for the growing population, decking, furniture making and various industrial applications.   The timber industry will continue to represent a significant percentage of South African exports and industry.

We are here to help make sure the industry stays forward thinking and keeps our natural resources and the environment protected.  We recognize what the timber industry brings to rural communities and hope in continues to do so far into the future.  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
