THE WOOD, THE MOST ECOLOGICAL MATERIAL FOR YOUR HOUSING ENVIRONMENT
The wood is an unmistakably ecological material: it is sustainable, renewable and consumes few energy.
Choosing wood for its housing environment avoid to use depletable ressources and to reduce energy consumption for implementation.
There is no risk of wood shortage : it is the only completely natural and renewable material … Indeed: to grow up, a tree only needs sun and a little water!
In the forestry: nothing gets lost. In Gascogne group, we are a fully integrated industry and we use 100% of the tree for several applications. We select the different parts of the wood to use it in its best using depending of its quality : wood energy, wood packing, decorative wood, paper. Even pine needles are used in cosmetic industry.
