Thank you for visiting the website of the Scottish Timber Trade Association (STTA). I am Iain Torrance, President of the Association and I am pleased that you are interested in, or involved with wood or wood products. Wood is a very versatile material which possesses a wide range of characteristics which make it suitable for an equally wide range of end uses, either in its solid form or in one of the many manufactured products, including wood based sheet materials and other engineered wood products. Another unique attribute of wood is that it is our only truly renewable construction material; it makes a valuable contribution to sustainable development and at the same time, helps to mitigate the effects of climate change.

The Scottish Timber Trade Association is the trade association which represents the technical and commercial interests of timber importers, sawmillers, timber merchants, timber agents, builders merchants and others who supply timber and wood products within Scotland.

Our website has been established to provide information and guidance for:

  • Those wishing to specify wood or wood products. Please see our Specifiers Guide and Sourcing Search.
  • Those involved in the timber trade. Please see our Members and News pages.
  • Those seeking other information about wood and wood products. Please see our Links page, which gives information on other timber related organisations.

I hope that you will find what you need in the pages of our website. If not, please contact us via the Contact section - we'll do our best to assist. If you have any comments to make, please leave us a message - at our Comments page - we'd be happy to hear from you.

Wood is a remarkable product; we hope that you will be able to make the most of what it has to offer.
