Mercwood is proud to help sustainable forestry. Every year thousands of acres of Forest are burnt by agriculture and cattle farmers in heavily regulated areas like the Amazon.
Mercwood provides you with decking that originates from well-managed forests. We selectively harvest a few trees per acre in the Forest assuring that the forest will be able to be reharvested in as little as 10 years. We are to be protecting the forest for future generations.
The real villains are the Cattle farmers and the Agriculture Farmers that burn the forest to profit on pasture and plantation.
Mercwood to harvest in the forest goes through all the necessary bureaucracy of obtaining the environmental surveys and obtaining the permits needed to harvest, mill, and export.
Brazil is one of the most regulated countries in the world about Wood harvesting. Brazil has an advanced e-permitting system that control and allows monitoring and improve the enforcement of the international agreement between governments CITIES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), that aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. Today it's totally fair to say that it's impossible to export Illegally harvest wood in Brazil. Environmental crime in Brazil is unbailable.
Mercwood and his partners are in conformity of the logging process and trackability of wood, called Chain of Custody, that tracks wood from the forest to the exported products.
