Merbau Timber Sustainability
The Hidden Damage Caused By Merbau Decks In Australia
Why not use Merbau?
- The destruction of large forest areas to get just one tree is shocking!
- It doesn’t grow easily in plantations.
- The small Islands of Indonesia cannot sustain this continued destruction
- It is very difficult to enforce any laws put in place.
- Logs are often smuggled over near-by borders or officials are paid off to turn a blind eye.
- It is rapidly causing the extinction of beautiful defenceless animals
- Not only losing their homes – THEIR SPECIES IS BEING WIPED OUT!
Where there is big money involved it will only continue.
