Historically, most of Australia’s hardwood timber has come from native forest reserves and more recently large quantities have begun to be imported from rainforest areas in developing countries. Committed to a sustainable harvesting of the world’s hardwood resources, Radial Timbers and local Gipsland, Heartwood Plantation, believe that old growth and rainforest timber should be preserved for future generations, and that the timber industry should follow their footsteps and look to suitable farmland to establish local native plantations.

Touchwood is a social media campaign that aims to educate Australians in sustainable timber initiatives. Providing an opportunity for the community to make a difference, the campaign promises to plant a new native tree in their plantation for every ‘Facebook Like’ they receive. The total likes received will not only represent a tree that the public helped to plant, but more importantly, every like represents one more person who is aware that there is a sustainable choice in timber.
