Solid wood represents the purest form of wood used in furniture, devoid of chemicals and glue. When properly processed, it’s also resistant to borers. However, the demand for solid wood often outpaces its availability. Various solid wood species like teak, rosewood, beech, and pine exist, each with maturity periods ranging from 5 to 50 years. Therefore, responsible usage is crucial:
- Consider replantation timelines matching tree maturity.
- Prioritize woods with shorter maturity periods.
- Maintain a balanced approach to forestation across species to ensure sustainability.
