Forest and timber – our future
We work with a local, renewable raw material. We are very conscious of the environmental significance of our raw material. We process and finish almost exclusively fir and spruce from the region. So our transport routes stay short. We know and appreciate our local log suppliers and our other partners in the forestry sector. And we share the same goals: the most environmentally sound use of wood possible.
The delivered logs are immediately measured and classified electronically. The corresponding data goes directly to the accounting office for further processing.
«Our local wood is a resource and represents enormous potential. It is important that everyone, the forestry sector, the timber industry and end consumers, speaks up for a healthy forest economy.»Benedikt Dörig, Forest team Appenzell
«Local forestry has potential. More active management would strengthen the position of Swiss timber.»Roger Wegmüller, log purchasing
The forest is truly multi-talented
Both the environment and, to a large extent, mankind benefit from the roles that the forest plays. Active management and cultivation are usually necessary to ensure that the forest can optimally provide the services it’s expected to. Let’s take care of the forest.
