Origin of Beech Wood

ORIGIN: UK, Europe and North America

Much of the beech used in Britain is imported from France whose industry certification, the PEFC, is very weak compared to the FSC. Beech from Romania and Poland may have come from ancient forests. Beech is one of Armenia’s most popular exports, to furniture-producing countries such as the United Arab Emirates and Italy, even though it has already lost most of its forest cover and loses around 1 million cubic metres of trees annually from illegal logging

FSC beech; reclaimed beech is widely available as wood strip and woodblock flooring
