We only select the trees that are straight and hence suitable for making furniture. The rest is left to grow naturally and re-seed. There is also replantation where required.
Wood is a renewable & sustainable resource if harvested correctly.
Illegal forestry practices remain a major cause for concern worldwide, being the main cause of deforestation and forest degradation. The certification that the wood used in our workshop comes from sustainably managed forests and it is increasingly important, that this must be taken into account.
There are 3 elements of wood sustainability that we take into account:
The legal right to harvest wood.
Preserving Forest Health, Maintaining Resources, Biodiversity and the Ecosystem
Compliance with the conditions regarding the harvesting, processing and marketing of wood (including in terms of working conditions).
So why do we use sustainable wood?
By purchasing materials made from sustainable wood you are helping prevent illegal forestry, reducing carbon emissions from deforestation, thus supporting the promotion of sustainable development.
Sustainability is part of our success. Together with our partners, we want to contribute for a better future. We are all becoming increasingly aware how important trees are to our environment, so it is extremely important that there is a sustainable and growing supply of forest.
