Make a long-term commitment to biodiversity and forests

It is possible to preserve biodiversity in forests and fight climate change.

Why do we need sustainable forestry?

Why do we need sustainable forestry?

Forests are the second largest carbon sink on the planet and home to 80% of the world’s land biodiversity. Our methods respect natural ecosystems, improve biodiversity and increase trees' resilience. Ultimately, close-to-nature forestry allows us to produce wood sustainably without damaging the biodiversity of the forest or its ecosystems.

Sustainable forestry conserves biodiversity

Uneven-aged forest management

We combine trees of different ages to promote biodiversity and avoid clear-cutting at the end of their life cycle.

The production of timber is possible through this continuous cover forest management, which preserves the soil as well as the diversity of animal and plant species. There is no abrupt forest intervention in this way.

EcoTree

Mixed species

We avoid monoculture forests. Instead, we plant a variety of species to improve the natural resilience of our forests.

All of our forestry plans are mapped out with a principal species in mind (the target species), one or two secondary species, and accompanying species to add diversity. This system promotes the health of the ecosystems in our forests.

EcoTree

No chemicals

We never use any pesticides in our forests. Saplings are protected by a natural repellent and temporary fencing. Trico (the natural repellent we treat our saplings with) is made from sheep fat which naturally rebuffs ungulates, or hoofed animals — the saplings' main predators. In places where grazing is a more prevalent issue, fencing is installed around the saplings until they have matured.

EcoTree

Preserving ecosystems

Our ecologists conduct inventories to determine which species need to be protected and which measures to implement. We monitor the progress of our actions over time. We conduct an Index for Biodiversity (IBP), an inventory report for biodiversity in all of our forests when possible to determine their optimal biodiversity conditions. After a few years, a follow-up inventory tells us if the biodiversity of that forest has been enriched.
