Precentage based labelling

FSC® timber from James Callander carries a percentage-based label. This means that a minimum of 70% of the wood is from FSC® endorsed forests. In practice the percentage is much higher. The remainder is sourced from forests which have an equally high standard of care as demanded by the Forestry Commission under the UK Woodland assurance Scheme.
