Oak is a beautiful and highly popular type of wood that is used for flooring, furniture and various other purposes around the home. If you buy oak from the wrong sources though, you are contributing to wider problems in the production and sustainability of oak products. You need to make sure your oak supplier is meeting with the right regulations.
Oak is a wood that is widely grown in the UK. There are many different sustainable sources where you can source your oak. One of the things to look out for is the FSC or PEFC logo when buying wood, as this shows that is is approved by the Forest Stewardship Council or the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification. You should also check with the supplier or retailer and look at their certification to make sure they are sourcing oak responsibly. They should have documentation to support what they tell you.
