Our raw material
Our beechwood comes exclusively from sustainably managed forests and are mainly sourced from within a 150 km radius of the sawmill.
Timber production does not necessarily have a negative effect on climate change – quite the contrary, in fact. Sustainable forest management can actively contribute to climate protection.
For a long time beechwood was neglected in forestry, and was mainly used as firewood. It was not until the mid-19th century that the beech tree was discovered as a source of timber, and afforestation began. Today it is the most common deciduous tree in Germany, accounting for around 15% of the entire tree population.
