Peak Oak Are Growing
Excuse the pun, but we really are growing...
An increase in oak flooring sales mean we've had to plant more oak trees on the farm and welcome a new member to the Peak Oak team.
First off, we're pleased to introduce Clint Rushton.
Clint's role is to make sure our stores run smoothly, organising our flooring into grades and ensuring that your order is packed and dispatched correctly.
If you visit us, you'll no doubt see Clint whizzing around on the forklift!
Secondly, we're increasing our oak tree planting programme to make an effort to offset the trees cut down to produce our flooring.
All of our oak flooring comes from sustainable, carefully managed forests in Europe where trees are planted to replace those felled.
Our trees are planted in addition to those planted by the forests.
There's a big debate at the moment as to the value of FSC or PEFC approval for retailers selling to the public.
Look out for a big post on this blog detailing our views in the near future - we'll also be asking you for your opinions.
