“There are many reasons why we should encourage the use of wood in construction and a key one is sustainability,” Says Hout Info Bois director Hugues Frère. Indeed, its production, extraction, transformation and usage mean it scores very highly in the range of renewable materials. Contrary to popular belief, relying on European-grown wood does not go against environmental ethics as the tight label laws ensure that our forests are managed sustainably and extraction levels do not exceed growth rates. The platform Hout Info Bois provides a breadth of information on this topic as well as resources on which wood to use for which ends and what the advantages of this noble material are
