All of our furniture is made from some of the best hardwoods to grace the earth, namely Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, and Tiger Maple. Most items are Mahogany which is felled by Global Lumber in "forest reserves," where the wood is periodically cut in swaths in a strictly regulated way. This allows the canopy of the tree tops to remain, unharmed, and stay 'Globally Significant Biodiversity Areas,' and prevent other loggers from simply clear cutting. Once a strip is felled, it can not be logged again for at least forty years to ensure renewability, and maintain the health of the local ecosystem. Much of the lumber comes from areas which has some of the most restrictive logging regulations on the planet, where each tree is specifically chosen as to not hurt the area and no more than two trees per hectare, or about two and a half acres, can be felled at a time.
