Canadian Wood hosted a successful webinar on legally harvested & seasoned timber for a better future
Sharing insights on the Canadian wood industry and legally harvested wood, Mr. Peter Bradfield, Technical Advisor, Canadian Wood said-
"Canada is a nation with 10% of the world's forest area. Moreover, it has made efforts to create sustainably managed forests with 0% deforestation. 95% of the wood from Canada comes from sustainably managed and publicly owned forests. These forests are protected by the country's strict forest management laws. Canadian Wood assures that each customer gets reliable, highly certified, and legally sourced seasoned woods every time. It also ensures the responsible development of rural areas, generating meaningful jobs, and reserving biodiversity, among other factors."
Speaking on the legality of the timber trade, Dr. E.V. Anoop, Professor and Dean, Kerala Agricultural University said-
"It is pertinent for India to create a balance of trade between the wood import and export in India. While the import is abundant in India, we are importing illegal wood from politically unstable countries without considering the ecological footprints. At the same time, the export of wood from India is almost insignificant as numerous countries around the world require a credible wood certification."
