Logging Timber the Sustainable Way
With Fiji"s construction industry steaming ahead, local timber products
have been in high demand in all areas of building industry.
Locally-based Sustainable Forest Industries Ltd has been providing native timber and mahogany from the plantations of Fiji for the local and export markets.
One of its companies, South Seas Timber Traders, based in Suva provides high quality processed timber products.
Rough sawn lumber is processed into a variety of products including flooring, decking, interior lining and weatherboard exteriors as well as
products such as louvre blades, skirtings and mouldings or simply dressed lumber.
Modern kiln technologies are used to stabilise the lumber and pressure treatments are used to preserve the wood.
Green milling and additional drying operations, specialising in the mahogany export market are based near Pacific Harbour.
Round log is sourced and delivered from the surrounding areas and Viti Levu, Vanua Levu and other islands. Sourcing logs from these regions in Fiji is not an easy task because weather conditions and terrain in Fiji make it tough going when trying to extract log products in an appropriate manner for commercial use under the sustainable banner, says the company.
