Sustainable is defined as conserving and ecological balance by avoiding depletion of natural resources. Sawmills Devon deeply believes in the true sustainability of our products. The sustainability of their sourcing, manufacture and delivery as well as their longevity of use. Our ethos is also to ensure a sustainable yeild of products from the woodlands we manage to ensure future supplies. The majority of the plants, birds and animals native and endemic to this island are dependant to some extent on our woodlands. These woodlands are very often very small exotic islands stranded in a sea of dead agricultural land with may be the odd hedge clinging on inbetween. We therefore manage these woodlands very carefully not only to preserve and conserve the plant, bird and animal species living there but where possible to increase the biological diversity of the woodlands by creating new habitats.
