La forêt française Major forest of Western Europe, French forests cover more than 15 millions ha and represent a standing wood volume of 2 billion m3. 128 different species are available in France French forests increase their standing wood volume by 88 million m3 every year. Hardwoods account for two thirds of the total forest harvested.

Sustainable forest management In 1827 France set up a controlled forest management system. Drawing from experience, France initiated the PECF certification scheme (Programme of Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme) which guarantees resource renewal During the last 50 years, French forests have increased by 35 % while at the same time maintaining their biological diversity.

The different sliced wood patterns Producing veneers can be done according to two techniques: slicing or peeling. Those methods of processing combined with the specie of wood, aim to supply the customer with an impressive and trendy range of products. The main patterns are listed bellow. However, some producers are able to deliver other cutting styles.

CROWN CUT + QUARTER CUT Sliced from the outside and then perpendicular to the growth rings, the veneers shows two different patterns; part is showing a cathedral pattern, part is showing a striped pattern.

QUARTER CUT Sliced perpendicular to the growth rings, the veneer shows a striped pattern.

HALF CROWN CUT Slicing half a log at a flat angle, the veneer shows a cathedral pattern on one side of the sheet and a striped pattern on the other side.

RIFT CUT By peeling one quarter of log, the veneers shows a striped pattern

BURLS Burls logs are rotary cut in order to give the veneers a wild and irregular pattern, with nests and eyes features.
