Welcome to the
Scottish timber trade association

COVID-19 Information

Welcome from our President


Thank you for visiting the website of the Scottish Timber Trade Association (STTA), the trade association that represents the technical and commercial interests of timber and panel product importers, sawmillers, merchants and specialist agents who supply a wide range of wood and wood products to the market in Scotland.

I am Roderick Aitken, President of the Association and am pleased that you are interested in, or involved with wood or wood products. Wood is an amazingly versatile material which possesses remarkable characteristics which make it suitable for a very 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. Wood from sustainably managed  sources is an essential component of a low carbon economy.

Members of the Scottish Timber Trade Association are committed to demonstrating the  environmental acceptability of wood and wood products, they aim to make  wood the first choice for the widest range of end uses, including construction, civil engineering,  joinery, furniture, shopfitting, decorative applications, cladding, garden and landscape products

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

  • 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.
