1 cubic meter of wood (m3) = One tree

Per cubic meter of used wood, we finance planting a new tree. learn more..

Trees mean life. That does not only mean that they are plants and have a metabolism. All living creatures depend on them. Without our forests, we would neither have air to breathe, nor animals, nor wood to build our houses.

For decades, human beings have taken more wood from the forests than can grow back.

Worldwide lumbering is at a record high.

Germany is the second largest exporter of wood products worldwide. But where does the wood come from? With growing sales numbers, illegal lumbering also increases. In Germany and other EU member states, there are enough control mechanisms to call the overexploitation of natural resources to a halt and to allow sustainable forestry. But it’s not everywhere like this.

If nothing changes, all of us will pay our toll for this overexploitation very soon.

We wish to contribute to a sustainable use of resources. We are especially interested in supporting small regional projects, addressing the challenges of our times and committing themselves to change.

Our contribution in figures: Per m³ of used wood, we donate as much as is needed to grow back the same amount in one life cycle. We do not necessarily support reforestation projects but also renaturation and forest protection in general. And we want to foster social commitment in this respect on a regional level, in particular.



wooden shingle

The lifetime of a wooden shingle roof depends very much on the roof pitch, ventilation and laying. However, the most important factor is the kind of wooden shingles used. The surface of cleaved wooden shingles is much more water-repellent, compared to sawed shingles, and their slightly uneven shape provides sufficient ventilation, so the roof dries very quickly after some rainy days.

Made of the heartwood of some durable wood species, such as pine, larch or oak, a wooden shingle roof can last for several generations, provided that it is regularly  maintained  with wood tar.
