The wood, ecological material

In terms of ecology and sustainable development has numerous advantages in front of other material competitors, which require a big quantity of energy for his production, whereas the wood transform with a low consumption of energy, and besides in his cycle of production, use and elimination obtains an ecological balance positive when fixing CO2 in his stage of growth. This gas is the main caused of the greenhouse effect.

An environmental improvement of the forests involves an efficient fixation of CO2, since the forests adults, that have arrived to the heights of maximum growth fix quantities very small of said gas, whereas the young forests that still find in phase of growth fix some main quantities of carbon.

All the wood purchased by La Sierra so much in national territory and mattered fulfils the corresponding certificates and treaties of forest logging and sustainable development.
