Back to the Future

Blog

It has been a long, long time since automobile dashboards were made from wood. You can still find them in antique car collections.

Today, the interior components of the car you drive are most likely made from Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene – or, ABS plastic – which is derived from petroleum.

However, your next car may very well have a dashboard made, in part, from wood.

Top-to-Bottom Efficiency

Or more accurately, bottom-to-top.
Blog

Most people understand that a tree can be used to make different types and grades of furniture, cabinets, lumber and paper. But what many do not realize is that, in many cases, a single tree may provide all of these useful products – and more.

To understand this, it is helpful to think from the bottom up.

The large diameter base of a tree’s trunk may be used to produce fine veneers for doors and tables.

Sourcing Responsibly

Blog

Whenever possible, we buy materials from suppliers near our facilities. This shortens our supply chain and reduces risk. Being close to our suppliers also allows us to know them and ensure they produce responsibly the materials and services we need, in addition to strengthening the local economy. 

We are committed to safeguarding endangered forests and wildlife, respecting the culture and rights of indigenous peoples, and conserving natural forests and biodiversity by sourcing wood from responsibly managed forests.
