Where I can I will indicate the very wood a particular product came from, but sometimes due to the working method of the foresters, felling the trees one day and collecting from several woodlands at a later date, they can only indicate the area from which a particular tree came from. In the spirit of honesty I will indicate when the wood has come from a known wood, location or area.
