About Our Timber Products

Our sustainable timber products

Timber is the ultimate renewable. Our products are sourced from OneFortyOne’s sustainably managed forests in Australia and New Zealand.

Sustainable forest management epitomises the very ethos of OneFortyOne. The estate and our management practices are recognised as being best practice, and that endorsement is sealed through our independent certification. Our Australian forests are certified by the Australian Forest Certification Standard (AS 4708- 2013). In New Zealand, Nelson Management Limited is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC-C074692).

Builders and homeowners appreciate the strength and ease of construction of timber framing. Future renovations are easy as new construction can be easily integrated with the existing structure. We select the best-performing trees to study and reproduce, so every year we continue to lift the quality of our timber. Our products combine strength, durability, lightness and sustainability, from our premium structural timber framing to our decking and posts. 

Timber framing is a great insulator and coupled with energy efficient design, timber-framed homes will keep energy costs down and will be comfortable into the future.

Choosing timber in design and construction can help address climate change. One of the most important is that wood stores carbon. Growing trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, emit oxygen and store carbon. Carbon remains locked in the wood for the life of the piece of timber until it rots, decays or is burnt.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
