Nature & Environment
A healthy forest represents much more than wood and its many uses. The forest also offers us peace and quiet and close encounters with Nature and the wilderness.
The natural life cycle of growing, ageing and fresh starts is reflected in the forest. Old trees make room for new growth. The same occurs in the production of veneer when single trees of advanced age are harvested. The forest quickly – and naturally – fills in the gap.
The high value of a single harvested tree is worthwhile for the forest owner. The forest generates profit, so it pays to protect it.
The work of environmentally aware veneer companies contributes to preserving the forests in their natural diversity for our children.
Because environmental protection is important to us, we have supported sustainable forestry for many years.
Schorn & Groh acts with the environment and sustainability in mind for the protection of forests around the world. We prefer to work with forest owners who practice responsible forestry. Furthermore, we deal exclusively with legally imported wood. Our certification guarantees our customers that we very carefully handle the valuable raw material wood.
Since 2003 our company has been FSC®-certified and since 2008 PEFC-certified too. If you are interested in certified material, please ask us, as not every log is certified as described above.
