Creemos que parte de nuestra tarea, en representación de nuestra industria, consiste en ayudar a ofrecer fuentes de inspiración, de información y proporcionar evidencias de que la madera de frondosas estadounidenses puede dar forma a un proceso creativo. Para ello encargamos informes, imágenes fotográficas y vídeos; y desarrollamos publicaciones técnicas para diseñadores, arquitectos e ingenieros.

Guías creativas y técnicas editadas por nosotros para diseñadores, arquitectos e ingenieros que proporcionan inspiración, información y evidencia de que las frondosas estadounidenses pueden dar forma a un proceso creativo.

Informes originales, encargados por nosotros para proporcionar información y evidencias de la legalidad y sostenibilidad de las frondosas estadounidenses.

Telling the whole story: The environmental life cycle of American hardwoods

All products have an impact on the environment and this impact can occur at any time during the manufacture, usage or at end of life. All these stages are collectively called a life-cycle. Products have impacts from: material extraction and transport; processing, manufacture, distribution and installation; maintenance and refurbishment; to eventual end of life and disposal.

Maximising carbon storage through sustainable forest management

This briefing draws on information from a range of recent studies to show how a policy of active forest management including sustainable timber production can offer significant carbon benefits compared to a strategy that relies only on forest preservation.

Introduction to U.S. forestry regulation

It is increasingly important for buyers and users of forest products to understand the regulatory framework governing forest management in the countries from where timber is sourced. Laws like the EU Timber Regulation and U.S. Lacey Act require that traders and manufacturers demonstrate this knowledge to regulators so they are assured of a negligible risk of illegal harvest.
