Treated Timber you can Trust

Treated Timber you can Trust

The Timber Trade Federation and the Wood Protection Association (WPA) are joining forces in a strategic partnership agreement aimed at strengthening the UK market for treated wood. 

Following the survey conducted by both organisations, three key issues were identified for further work: 

  • tackling buyers’ knowledge to enable correct specification and ordering
  • improving user awareness of how to use and install pre-treated wood
  • building confidence in the marketplace on the quality of timber treatment

TTF members will be able to access WPA specialist services such as regulatory affairs, an important area as the country navigates through the Brexit process, also technical support and access to the WPA Benchmark quality assurance scheme at privileged partner rates. 

The agreement has significant potential to improve merchants’ knowledge  and will be backed by a Treated Timber you can Trust campaign.
