Sustainable forestry, the wonders of wood

The next generation of Tanalith® preservatives is ideal for environmentally sensitive applications. Wood has served the purposes of humankind since time immemorial. With the increased global focus on offsetting carbon emissions, and mitigating climate change, sustainable forestry and the subsequent wood products produced will play an increasing role in striving for a green economy.

Did you know that the ends of branches and shoots contain living cells, which cause branches to lengthen and the tree to grow taller as it assumes the height and form characteristics of its species? Living cells under the dead bark also grow, but it grows outwards in rings and makes the tree thicker, not taller.


Timber Treatment Process

Wood is one of the most versatile construction materials in the world. Some woods are ideal for insulation, some for acoustics and others for structural frames, walls, floors, ceilings and furniture. With characteristic wood grains, colours, appearances and various final finishes, wood can be carved, moulded, cut, glued and nailed to make almost any form.

TANALISED® Pressure Treated Poles make ideal trusses for rustic constructions, especially in our extreme African climate. With combined strength and protection from the elements and insect attacks, you’ll have a roof over your head for decades.

Always insist on TANALISED® Pressure Treated Wood!
