We also handle an additional 350,000 tonnes of roundwood on behalf of third parties. This makes us one of the largest timber harvesting companies in the UK and the only major sawmilling company in Scotland to operate its own harvesting programme.
James Jones & Sons harvesting operations are FSC and ISO 14001 certified, underscoring our commitment to our customers and the environment.
Roundwood timber is purchased through three buying arrangements:
Timber harvesting, haulage and roundwood purchasing is managed through James Jones and Sons Harvesting Division from the Group’s head office and our five mill sites in Scotland.
Safety is at the forefront of everything we do and we are a founder member of the Forest Industry Safety Accord, which is working towards making forestry a safer industry in which to work.
