Laurelwood Imports is an environmentally conscious business, with our ethics, principles and practice, reflected in the use of Camphor Laurel as a salvaged and sustainable resource.

Camphor Laurel is a large evergreen tree that was introduced to Australia from South East Asia, in the early 1800's as a shade tree for public schools.  The species is an invasive woody weed capable of aggressively replacing native trees along watercourses and on soil types which formerly supported rainforests. The infestation and spread of Camphor Laurel is aided by birds dispersing the seed and its spread is particularly prevalent in disturbed landscapes, thereby contributing to soil erosion and the demise of native Flora and Fauna. Camphor Laurel has long been recognized as a serious environmental weed species in Australia, and control programs advocate integrated removal and replacement with native trees. Laurelwood Imports and their timber suppliers are working with the Australian Federal Government and the control programs to remove Camphor Laurel and replace them with native Australian Flora. In the process, the salvaging of Camphor Laurel provides a good source of ethically acceptable timber for Laurelwood Imports to produce our products.
