Wood is a material with an ecological, healthy and renewable future because it does not emit CO2but stores it.
The principle of the hierarchy of uses of wood:
Wood is :
Wood, which is particularly fire resistant, transmits :
Today, artisanal manufacturing is being swallowed up by the industrial giants of furniture production.
The craft industry makes it possible to create and repair furniture with local wood, using local carpenters and cabinetmakers.
The use of wood avoids emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels, which emit more greenhouse gases.
Logs, wood chips and pellets can be used to fuel efficient and less polluting heating appliances.
Along with oceans and forests, soils are one of the planet's main carbon reservoirs. Soils that are "exposed" following clear-cutting then release stored carbon into the atmosphere in the form of CO2, which until then had been in organic form.
These cuts thus make a major contribution to greenhouse gas emissions.
For EcoTree, it is important to be aware of the consequences of clear-cutting. We must get away from the logic of clear-cutting and monoculture, which impoverishes the diversity of forests. This is why EcoTree diversifies its forests by age and species.
