Consumption of tropical wood important for the preservation of the rainforest

Preventing the deforestation of the rainforest by buying tropical wood? That sounds paradoxical at first. But if you look at the situation of many forestry companies in Latin America and Southeast Asia, it is also known as “Usage paradox” The effect described above is clearly evident.

As long as forestry companies can manage the forest in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way and earn money from it, they are not faced with the question of whether they should sell forest plots to Agricultural corporations have to sell. If the management is not profitable in the long term, the land is sold and the forest is cleared to create arable land.

When consumers and retailers buy tropical wood from sustainable and certified forestry buy, they secure the existence of the forest. The prerequisite is careful forest management according to the Principles of sustainability.
