The Benefits of Environmentally Friendly Timber Pegs for Your Next Big Project

In this day and age, it really does pay to be an environmentally friendly business. It not only reduces your impact on the environment it also preserves natural resources for future generations. And when it comes to survey pegs or survey marking stakes, choosing timber is a great way to look after our environment now and into the future. Wooden survey pegs are used to mark out residential boundaries and indicate points and positions of a site. Made from wood, metal and plastic, they come in a range of different sizes and coloured tops.

Choosing timber pegs over metal and plastic

Wood is an environmentally sustainable product. It is biodegradable and renewable with many types of trees harvested right here in our very own Australian plantations.
Using timber survey stakes made from timber ensures a low carbon footprint. This makes timber survey marking stakes a greenhouse friendly choice when compared to metal and plastic survey pegs.

Overall, the use of timber pegs makes a positive contribution to the long-term reduction of carbon emissions. Did you also know that approximately half of the dry weight of a living tree is carbon? This can be stored for the lifetime of the tree and retained through the timber manufacturing process. Using sustainable timber means that on replanting, the cycle of carbon absorption and retention starts again. Using reclaimed or recycled timber to make timber survey pegs is also an environmentally sound choice as no trees need to be cut down.

Why more and more builders are choosing timber survey stakes

Wood is easily workable, highly machinable and can be fabricated into all kinds of shapes and sizes to fit the variety of requirements for survey pegs used on construction sites. Timber survey pegs can also withstand our harsh Australian climate extremely well. As opposed to plastic survey pegs which will fade and break when left out in the elements long term.

Environmentally friendly timber pegs are the way to go

Environmentally friendly timber pegs are low maintenance, cost-effective and they improve the environment. Durable, timber survey marking stakes are also known for their longevity and ease of use within the building industry. Less susceptible to cracking or splitting, environmentally friendly survey marking pegs are much stronger when being driven into the ground. Timber survey stakes generally have square cut pointed ends with the benefit being that the shape of the point naturally drives into the ground a lot easier, especially beneficial when working on a site that has especially hard ground.
