Dr. Jimmy Thomas from Canadian Wood, said, "Through my journey with Canadian Wood since 2016, I've witnessed first-hand the unparalleled diversity and quality of timber available from Canada's forests. In a marketplace where options may seem limited, Canada stands as a beacon of variety, offering five distinct species suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Our timber, sourced from certified and sustainable forests, boasts maturity and stability, ensuring enduring service unlike any other. Beyond mere appearance or weight, the true essence of wood lies in its intricate structure, where the presence or absence of pores determines its classification as hardwood or softwood. In this complexity lies the beauty and resilience of timber- a testament to nature's craftsmanship and our commitment to stewardship.”
