  TruChoice Premium Millwork Products
TruChoice mouldings are the right choice for every building professional. With more than 10,000 profiles - the broadest mix available from a single manufacturer - TruChoice mouldings are precision-milled for consistent high quality and lasting visual appeal.

TruChoice mouldings are manufactured by Arauco, Chile's largest forestry products company and world leader in sustainable forestry. Made from sustainable, renewable, plantation-grown Radiata pine, Taeda pine, and MDF pine-fiber, TruChoice is easy to install and finish, and delivers exceptional on-the-job performance.
 
 
  Sustainability
TruChoice Arauco premium millwork products are made from wood grown on long-established, sustainably managed forest plantations. No native forest wood or genetically modified trees are used to produce any TruChoice products. In addition, TruChoice Arauco premium millwork products have verified legal origin, and are compliant with the regulations of the USDA’s Lacey Act governing the importation of plant-based products.

The forests that provide Radiata pine for TruChoice Arauco are certified as being in compliance with CERTFOR, Chile’s strict national standard for sustainable forest management. Developed by a non-profit, non-governmental organization, with expert technical assistance from the Chilean Forestry Institute, the CERTFOR standard is endorsed by the international Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC).

CERTFOR is your assurance that TruChoice Arauco premium millwork products originate in plantations that are managed in an environmentally appropriate and socially responsible manner.

In addition, ARAUCO has recently completed its first-ever carbon footprint assessment of its operations in Chile, Brazil and Argentina. ARAUCO’s carbon footprint is at the low end of those reported by the forest products industry, and the company is on a path to further reduce its carbon footprint in the years ahead.
