Why us

Our Products

All our products are produced from well managed sustainable forests and are 100% natural. Nothing is added, it is just wood, and our wood-sources used are from forestry areas not far from our location.

Wood-wool

Our wood-wool is produced from special selected wood timber ( Pine or Popular ) sources from an area close by. The produced wood wool is of a very high quality, natural, and is capable of retaining its properties for many intended uses.

More details

Wood-Wool

The most common uses of wood-wool is

  • universal padding;
  • decorative material in luxury gifts;
  • underlaying for fruits
  • litter for pets, exotic animals;
  • for packing engineering parts;

At the end of its life, in the right conditions, it is biodegradable and will breakdown naturally in your compost bin. Wood wool is really a fantastic bio-degradable packaging solution and a great option for usage instead of plastic based packing materials.

Although we produce different grades, where the grade differs in thickness of the string, the most common produced wood-wool has a thickness of 0,1 – 0,15mm and 2mm width of the string.

The Popular produced wood-wool is more white ( decorative ) in colour, while the Pine wood-wool is more off-white in colour.

We pack our product into the needs of the customer, which means we pack our product into cardboard boxes from 1 to 5kg. The size of the 1kg box is 33 x 48 x 22cm, while a 5kg box has dimensions of 40 x 60 x 70cm. If needed we can also pack the wood-wool in 2 or 3kg boxes

It is possible to have the wood-wool packed into transparent plastic bags of 2.5kg.  However we prefer the wood-wool not to be packed in plastic bags, as plastic is not sustainable, and is in contradiction of our vision working with natural products.

We do not compress our produced wood-wool into bales. By compressing the wood-wool into bales the physical properties of the wood-wool of being resilient, elastic and springy is getting reduced by the mechanical compression of the baling machine.

With other words our product is more voluminous and therefore extremely high in quality for protection of packed goods.

Fencing Posts

Our fencing posts are produced from the European sweet chestnut, which is a hardwood. By being a hardwood it doesn’t need to be treated with a chemical or other kind of treatment. Our fencing posts have a durability of 15 to 25 years and are widely used for fencing, vineyards, orchards, gardens, public areas, children playgrounds, nature reserves etc, in other parts of Europe, where sustainability and 100% natural is preferred.

We have 2 types of fencing posts in all kind of different length and diameter.
– Round, debarked and pointed
– Split, also debarked and pointed, but shaped as half round or triangle by the splitting and are processed from thicker diameters logs.

Chestnut (castanea) wooden posts are mainly used for fencing gardens or in the agriculture to support orchard trees and vineyards and lately used in public places or children playgrounds, nature-reserves due to the fact the wood is 100% natural. The durability of chestnut is known to users. Farmers in particular use these fence posts to close off their pastures.

The durability is class 2, which means that these poles have a lifespan of between 15 and 25 years and this in continuous contact with ground or earth.

Chestnut posts have a nice, straight shape with a slight natural curvature. In addition to great durability, chestnut poles also have a very high ecological value. This is about the sweet chestnut. After cutting off the trunk, sweet chestnut will always form new shoots that will grow into new trees/trunks. As a result, the forest does not have to be replanted and it maintains itself. A perfectly infinite source of wood for posts and other applications.

These round posts are always peeled and pointed (not the semi-circular ones).

We have chestnut posts in many diameters for different applications.

The most common sizes are 8 to 10 cm in diameter for normal hobby garden use. Poles with a diameter of 10 to 12 cm are also often chosen as pasture posts.

The most common length of the poles vary from 1,60meter to 2meter

The wood originally has a golden-brown colour, which will quickly grey evenly. Due to the aging process, the poles will stand out less and blend in nicely with nature.

In France, split chestnut poles are used more than round poles because the durability is much higher. This is because the split and sawn chestnut wood is taken from much heavier wood. These heavier chestnut logs have the advantage that they are much straighter and they are also much older. Because the chestnut wood has been able to grow longer, the core has also grown. The centre part of the wood is the hardest part of the chestnut pole. The split and sawn chestnut wood therefore contains more core-wood than the round posts and is therefore stronger and lasts longer.

Further the split chestnut is in general a more cheaper fencing post than the round post due to the fact that one log provides a few split fencing poles.

Kindling Wood

Our Kindling Wood is produced from local sourced pine-trees, which have a low commercial value. The wood is dried to a moisture content of below the 20%. The resin inside the Pine will assure you an easy lighting of your fireplace or bonfire, and provide enough energy to give your wood-fire a roaring start.
