Due to Holz100 technology, even large projects like hotels and multi-family residences can be built with solid wood. Holz100 offers fire safety, sound insulation, security and comfort at a level unmatched by normal building methods.
If one compares the end product of wood grown in its natural environment with wood grown in a monoculture, one can see the qualitative difference. A spruce grown in unnatural circumstances is inferior in quality and less durable compared to one which grew in its natural environment and conditions.
Taking this a step further, we advise to not use wood from monocultures in low-lying areas for jobs like winter gardens or glass facades. The demands on the frame are high and the wood must be stable and calm.
These insights are gleaned from Dr. Erwin Thoma's experience of processing many thousands of trees from the forest to the finished item. The formula is always the same: observe nature and act accordingly.
To consider the origin of the wood is not only relevant to the forest owner or other wood professionals but also to the end consumer. Once we are aware of this and finally start to question where the wood comes from, the seller will ask his supplier. Soon the sawmills and forester will be confronted and this will cause them to start sorting their wood accordingly and responsibly. The end result of all these efforts will be buildings, toys, furniture and other wooden items free of chemicals and toxins.
We and the next generation need to take this opportunity to build a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.
