What is Rimu?
Rimu (Dacrydium cupressinum) is a sustainable, native New Zealand timber. It is prized for its inherently beautiful grain and is used extensively for furniture and in older character homes as both a structural and finishing timber.
Rimu forests are required to be managed to exacting standards under detailed long-term sustainable management plans. Every forest has its own individual Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry approved Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) Plan or SFM Permit.
This coffin is part of the memorial tree program. Upon purchasing this coffin a tree is planted through the non-profit Men of the Trees society.
