Timber is NOT made from "recycled content", timber is 100% wood. Trex, & other decking composite materials, are made of wood + plastic.

The site you included is for Hardie Plank siding. We replaced our redwood siding with Hardie Plank, also for fire resistance, & have been quite satisfied with it. It is a composite of cement and wood.

I have a question about the walkway example in the article. Whose product and color is it? We've been looking for just such a color variation and natural look and have been coming up empty. Thanks.
