TRĒOW Germany

The material for sustainable resource use

The engineered wood product TRĒOW is a visual statement that promotes the sustainable use of regional hardwood resources. The material uses less valuable hardwood small-diameter logs and tree cuttings, to produce a high-quality and inexpensive panel material for interiors. The sale of TRĒOW is intended to create long-term ecological, economic and social benefits. Forest owners plant more profitable hardwood forest, which benefits people and animals. The production will also strengthen the sustainable timber industry.
