The value of wood
We are all too aware that in order to enjoy Nature’s wood-creating powers indefinitely, we need to care for her.
We must manage her responsibly and harvest wood in such a way that the diversity and natural regenerative ability of the forests are respected, even enhanced.
We, humans, have a special,
privileged relationship with wood.
Since the beginning of time, wood
has been our favourite source
Over time, humans have developed new materials, each with their specific properties. And yet, wood remains man’s preferred source material and is even gaining popularity.
Positive CO2 impact
The production of alternatives to wood such as concrete (tiles), steel, and aluminium creates tons of CO2, giving these materials a negative CO2 footprint. That does not apply to wood, as trees absorb CO2 during their life cycle and store it until the wood is burned. Conclusion: using wood as a building material has a positive impact on CO2 levels in our atmosphere.
Unlike plastic, for example, wood is biodegradable. If it ends up in nature, it does not harm fauna and flora, but instead provides important food sources for numerous organisms.
Wood is relatively easy and recyclable. Class 1 durability hardwood boards, for instance, can be retrieved after 40 years, planed and reused for new purposes. It gives the wood a second life. At the very end of its lifecycle, it can be shredded and the chips can be used as biomass, for example.
Wood is a natural material. Designed and manufactured by the greatest creative force on earth, nature. Just like a walk in the forest, the feeling of being surrounded by wood connects us with nature and improves the quality of our life (see the concept of biophilia: humans have a natural desire to seek contact with nature and the natural; this has a positive impact on our well-being and even happiness).
