About Us

TRADA (The Timber Research and Development Association) is an international membership organisation dedicated to inspiring and informing best practice design, specification and use of wood in the built environment and related fields.  

We pride ourselves on providing independent, authoritative design and technical guidance through this website, on-line software, printed publications, e-books, and our telephone helpline. We link specifiers and purchasers with timber industry members through our Find a supplier directory.
