Grown in Britain: The Movie

What, why & how they do what they do…

Here’s a great little film from partners Grown in Britain whom we’re very proud to support.

CEO Dougal Driver gives a very clear of what Grown in Britain are all about.

Most recently the GIB team have completed a chain of custody verification that means everyone that gets licensed becomes part of a UK timber supply chain so our homegrown timber can be verified as legal and sustainable.

This means large retailers, the construction industry, local authorities & government procurement policies can all now specify homegrown timber for their projects. That means  well managed forests and woodlands who take u the license will find a sustainable market for their thinnings, and felled trees.

This is a big deal!

Find out more about getting your woodland, sawmill & wood products licensed.
