The Company

Why was Blue Roots founded?

Blue Roots Timber was founded because we saw a growing demand for premium sustainable timber. With the demand for first-class sustainable timber and care for the environment patently rising, there was an increase also in demand for great service and trust.

When we saw this happening we had full trust that we were the entrepreneurs that could meet this need.

Even more needed.

With an increasing world population, the request for timber is increasing. But regretfully this does not mean that premium quality and service will grow at the same rate as parties in the business promise.

More than anyone we understand that not meeting expectations means delay, lack of trust, and bad for business.
