Bavaria is the most important “timberland” in Germany: Thanks to a consistent forestry policy and sustainable ecologically oriented forest management system, one in three solid cubic meters of timber is found in Bavaria. It is the state with the largest forests in the Federal Republic of Germany. Wood is Bavaria’s most important renewable native raw material. It is a major source of energy, a proven material for building and engineering purposes and has a wide range of application possibilities.
The use of wood extends from housing and industrial construction all the way to state-of-the-art bridge structures and impressive projects such as the EXPO roof in Hanover – a sign of outstanding engineering skill accomplished by a Bavarian timber construction firm.
