Is it better to use impregnated softwood than tropical hardwood?

Category: Miljö

Remember that although modified or preserved wood approaches the properties of tropical wood, it requires processing of the wood. To increase the performance of softwood, for example, substances are added or the wood is heated at a high temperature. Modification sometimes also requires specific conifer species, which still have to be imported from far away. All this has a negative impact on the environment.

Tropical hardwood does not need that extra treatment, is naturally strong, has a long life and is also sustainable for people, animals and the planet. Because by choosing certified tropical wood, you also stimulate sustainable management and thus protection of our most vulnerable forests.
