Pest Management

TIMBERLANDS Limited is committed to responsible pest management and pesticide use in accordance with our legal and certification obligations.  We aim to use non-chemical methods and where chemical pesticides are required, use the least hazardous options subject to clear best management standards. 

In accordance with our FSC commitments we have undertaken an Environmental and Social Risk Assessment (ESRA) for each of chemical pesticide we use. This includes Glyphosate, Clopyralid, Haloxyfop, Hexazinone, Organosilicone, Piclorum, Terbuthylazine, 1080, Metsulfuron, Cyanide, Cholecalciferol, Brodificoum, Captan and copper products.  As an example please find a summary of our Glyphosate ESRA here.  The full Glyphosate ESRA and those for other pesticides are available on request. 

We also encourage feedback and would like to hear from you. If you have any comments or concerns please contact us here. The ESRA process has lead to some changes in how we apply pesticides, many of which are found in our best practice standards and aerial operations procedures.  As an example you can find our best environmental practice for aerial operations here.
