The framing company states this about their frames:
"The wood in our frames is harvested in compliance with the EU Timber Regulation. This means ascertaining where the wood used in the frames comes from and following the process as closely as possible in order to prevent illegal logging and to ensure that the entire chain complies with EU regulations. Our wood frames are made from timber originating in the USA and Canada, which are considered low-risk countries. Thanks to these measures, you can rest assured knowing that we operate responsibly and comply with laws and regulations."
