RAW MATERIAL


Sustainability

WE’RE TREE-HUGGERS.

Our quality criteria are truly green, not green-washed. The careful handling of wood, a CO2-neutral raw material, the production of predominantly PEFC certified products, and the reuse of every individual chip that comes into being in our plants are all a part of our conscious dealing with nature.

 

We cultivate the natural cycle of our element through maintaining a very special value-added chain that we put into practice with our subsidiary TTW Waldpflege and with Wald Plus. At Klenk Holz we don’t just cut down trees. We ensure a sustainable timber harvest and the conservation of domestic forests.

 

And what’s more: Wood chips become pulp for paper, sawdust turns into chipboard, and wood shavings become presswood pallets. Even bark is put to use as an energy source in our company’s own heating plants. Completely environmentally friendly. And completely valuable according the Klenk Holz principle. 




Material science

GOOD THINGS COME IN TREES.

What sets a Klenk Holz Lumberjack (or Lumberjill) apart from the rest? Our expertise, rooted in century-old traditions surrounding a regenerative tapestry: the forest. We set to work every day with this knowledge and awareness. In doing so, we use sustainably managed domestic wood species such as spruce, fir, Douglas fir, pine, and Mark Brandenburg pine.

SPRUCE

  • Color: yellow-white, darkens to yellow-brown when exposed to light
  • Structure: clearly visible annual ring structure
  • Character: strong strength and flexibility properties
  • Field of application: especially well-suited as a mouldings and building- and construction-timber

FIR

  • Color: yellow-white with gray-violet to blue sheen, darkens when exposed to light
  • Structure: resin-free tree species without resin canals
  • Character: many parallels to spruce wood; resistant to acids and alkalis
  • Field of application: most suitable for earthwork and hydraulic engineering

DOUGLAS FIR

  • Color: dark yellow red, darkens to brown-red when exposed to light
  • Structure: distinction between sapwood and heartwood clearly visible
  • Character: resilient and particular durable
  • Field of application: suitable for use in outdoor areas

PINE

  • Color: dark yellow to reddish brown
  • Structure: marked knottiness and characteristic annual ring structure
  • Character: strong strength and flexibility properties
  • Field of application: perfectly suited for the outdoor area due to its good impregnability

MARK BRANDENBURG PINE

The original vegetation region of the Mark Brandenburg pine is located in the Brandenburg forests. It finds optimal growing conditions in the sparse sandy soils typical of the region. The nutrient-poor soil ensures that the trees flourish very slowly. The Mark Brandenburg pine thereby develops a high wood density and a marked annual ring structure that ensures maximum stability and bearing capacity. Its elastic mechanical properties make the Mark Brandenburg pine extremely resilient. Storage of essential oils and resin in the wood result in the Mark Brandenburg pine’s natural resistance to fungi and insect attacks. The wood is especially suitable for use in roof areas.
