Sustainable Italian wood flooring
While the stories of deforestation in places like the Amazon and Indonesia are common, the opposite is true in Italy where re-afforestation has taken place on a huge scale since the end of the second world war. Today, Italy has 42,000 square miles of forested land - 35% of the country. The areas responsible for the majority of increase are the mountainous areas in the south where small-scale farmland has been abandoned allowing trees to grow.
Much of the production of wood for solid and engineered wood floors come from the regions of the north including Tuscany and Umbria. Oak along with beech make up 40% of Italian wood production under a forestry management system that goes all the way back to Roman times. Two-thirds of Italy’s woodland is privately owned but it is regulated centrally by the State Forestry Corps. The rest of the woodland is owned by local government and local communes similar to the system in France.
Our Italian suppliers have been producing wood products since 1832 from the mountainous region of Trentino. The family business originates from Bassano del Grappa, a stunning town in Italy's Veneto region famous for its wooden, 13th-century Ponte Vecchio bridge
which spans the River Brenta.
