At John Molloy Joinery Works, all our timber comes from managed forests and the moisture content is checked to ensure it is suitable for its new environment. On the subject of the environment, timber is one of a few materials that is renewable and every time you don't specify timber, you are aiding in the destruction of our planet.
A growing tree is similar to a gas chamber, absorbing carbon dioxide, locking in the carbon only and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere, in addition to this it helps to humidify the climate. However as a tree reaches maturity it slows down and little CO2 is removed. When mature trees fall and decay, they start to release CO2 into the air, and this brings on the need to harvest mature trees and replace them quickly. Controlled harvesting of forests are essential to maintain the balance and development of our environment.
At John Molloy Joinery, we work with some of the finest timber in the world. Check out the selection of hardwoods, softwoods and veneers below.
