with zero impact
Wood is a material made by nature according to nature’s rules.
Compared to many other raw materials – like stone, metal or fossil fuel deposits – wood is a potentially inexhaustible resource because it grows entirely nourished by the rays of the sun and the nutrients in rain. Wood has a slow life cycle, but it is completely ecological and continually renewable if the forest it grows in is carefully stewarded.
A cultivated forest, like fields planted with crops, not only produces better fruit, but it offers society a variety of benefits. Forests managed by man, with controlled growth cycles that favour the use of wood and its regeneration, can actually provide us with more oxygen.
Trees can absorb higher levels of carbon dioxide and, more importantly, retain it. All this in a much more efficient manner than woods left to their own devices. A forest cultivated in keeping with the rules of proper management, as it grows, not only provides a constant supply of wood – a truly unique material that is as versatile as it is beautiful– but it also plays a vital role in safeguarding the quality of the air we breathe, it regulates the ground’s hydro-geological balance and protects of the landscape.
Wood managed in this manner does not create any environmental damage, as a quarry or mine containing other natural resources might.
It really is a zero impact product.
