Heat Treated Wood for Exports

Lovvorn office

Lovvorn Wholesale Lumber Corporation can be your one-stop supplier of HT Heat-Treated Wood Products that conforms to new export regulations.

Effective October 1, 2001, the European Union (EU) will refuse imports of pallets, crates, boxes, and containers made of softwood lumber from the United States and other trading partners unless the material is heat treated and free of the pinewood nematode, a pest that can damage timber resources. This new standard may go global as the United Nation’s International Plant Protection Convention will likely adopt very similar measures in April 2003 for all non-manufactured wood packing material (NWPM), both softwoods and hardwoods.

Visit our frequently asked questions, contact your Lovvorn Lumber Account Manager, or our Sales Manager with any questions that you may have regarding the new regulations.

If you're exporting products overseas you'll want to be sure to keep up with these regulations -- we expect that there will be numerous changes implemented over the coming months.
