Trees are the main raw material for wood pulp but far from destroying the forests, the pulp industry is a custodian of this valuable resource. Pulp production can be based either on well managed natural forests or planted forests. The fact that the pulp industry is based on a renewable, recyclable raw material makes it perfectly positioned to play an important role in the bio-economy of the future.

Birch wood typically comes from small to medium-sized trees and shrubs found in temperate zones in the Northern Hemisphere. Birch is a thin-leaved deciduous hardwood tree of the genus Betula, in the family Betulaceae, which also includes alders, hazels, and hornbeams. It is closely related to the beech-oak family Fagaceae. The Birch tree grows all over the world and is popular for its wood, bark, and extracts. It's a hardwood used to make furniture, longboards, and plywood. Birch is widely used in the cabinet industry, mostly because it makes superior plywood that is stable, affordable and readily available in most home improvement stores.

How sustainable is birch wood?

A birch tree, which takes a third to half as long as an oak tree to reach maturity, is often seen to be a fairly sustainable wood source. Birches are fast-growing trees (1.5 feet annually) that can quickly provide benefits to your yard. The birch trees taken from the forests were planted for the purpose of harvesting and are being harvested for at least a second time. This means that only as much wood is allowed to be taken from the area as can grow back at the same time. The trees are replanted immediately with the purpose of harvesting them again.

Wood utensils are fully compostable and decompose in about 90 days. And more importantly, they can be tossed into a home or backyard compost bin or pile. The amount of time depends largely on where and how it is disposed of. If conditions are ideal, cutlery made from birch tree could completely decompose in about 80 days. In drier conditions, it could take much longer.
