Did you know? » Southland Beech trees are sustainably harvested
Supreme 01

Wood from sustainably grown and harvest beech trees is used in things like wall, ceiling and wood panels.

New Zealand’s native forests are highly valued and strictly protected and can only be harvested under a sustainable forest management plan or permit.

One of the only places in New Zealand where native timber is harvested is in western Southland, where Tuatapere forestry and wood processing company Lindsay & Dixon, sustainably manage and harvest maple beech trees from Longwood and Rowallan Beech forests.

The timber is used to make beautiful flooring, wall and ceiling panelling such as the interior of the courtroom at the Supreme Court in Wellington.
