We only use timbers and hardwood that come from sustainable sources at Jf Joinery. Do not destroy our rain forest by having your joinery made from illegaly sourced timber

By: john fanthorpe


English oak usually comes from storm damaged trees or those removed because they are coming to the end of their natural life. French and American oaks are grown as a renewable resource. At Jf joinery and JFJ flooring we respect our enviroment and use only timbers from sustainable sources.
Who is chopping down the Amazon rain forest?
The other group that heavily impacts the rain forest is the logger. Cutting timber for export onto the world market is big business. Lumber suppliers are interested in avoiding the purchase of "illegal" wood, but the wood doesn't come with a sign that says it's "okay" to use it. And as large sums of money exchange hands in this sad business, the practices continue and show little sign of letting up.
How many acres of rain forest are destroyed every day in brazil.?
5.400 acres an hour and 129,600 acres a day.
What is Illegal Logging?
Illegal logging takes place when timber is harvested, transported, bought or sold in violation of national and/or international laws. It is difficult to give a more precise definition than this because much depends on the specific laws of an individual country. In this respect, New Zealand accepts that sovereign nations are best placed to confirm the legality of timber operations and timber trade.
In environmental terms, illegal logging undermines measures to protect and sustainably manage forests. This can impact on some of the world’s most ecologically valuable forest ecosystems such as tropical rainforest, with resulting losses for global biodiversity and the habitats of endangered species. Depletion of forests due to illegal logging can also cause soil erosion, landslides, aggravate flooding, and alter the local climate.
