Giving back to nature | Oak planting tradition

May 20, 2022

Oak is the soul of all Ecowood Group members. From day one, we built an environmentally and socially responsible company. As many of our employees are foresters, we know how to preserve nature for future generations.

We source our oak wood from carefully selected, responsibly managed European forests. By purchasing raw materials from FSC®-certified suppliers, we are pursuing the goal of sustainability in our day-to-day operations. Forest management programs conserve forest resources and ensure responsible maintenance and reforestation. However, this is not enough.

 It is crucial that we plant new trees because they are an essential part of our everyday lives. Our responsibility is to return nature's gifts and maintain the balance.
 


 

Shared purpose

Ecowood Group members - Ecohardwood in the United Kingdom, the Ecowood plant, Medzio Stilius in Lithuania, Styl Drzewa in Poland, the Dubava Sawmill in Ukraine, and Oak Style have built a tradition of planting trees every year.
 


 

We plant oak forests every spring to show our respect for trees. We are united in our efforts to ensure that hundreds of sturdy, solid and long-lasting oaks grow on our planet in the future. As a result of our shared purpose, we have been able to learn how to cooperate more effectively and establish stronger relationships between teams from different countries.

Only one in ten oaks will reach maturity (only the strongest will survive). Therefore, this year Ecowood group employees gathered in Lithuania to plant 4000 oak trees.
 

 
 

The former head of the Medzio Stilius Vilnius branch, Vytautas, explained how to plant oak trees correctly to ensure they would flourish. After working for the company for seventeen years, Vytautas has recently returned to his first occupation, forestry. He now works as a forester for the Lithuanian State Forest Enterprise. The members of the Ecowood group were grateful for Vytautas' willingness to share his knowledge with them. Again, he became our leader in the context of oak planting.
 

Planting trees nationwide

It is man's responsibility to take care of nature's gift to him. A careless approach to nature has become increasingly prevalent on Earth, making tree-planting initiatives even more important.

A nationwide tree-planting initiative took place the same weekend that we planted oak trees. This was probably the largest forest planting in Lithuania, organized by the State Forest Enterprise. In the regional divisions of the SFE, companies, organizations, communities, and individuals planted trees. In all, 748 hectares of forests were planted.

Businesses, as well as consumers in Lithuania and around the world, now recognize the importance of conserving resources and taking environmentally friendly steps.

We recently collaborated with Ecohardwoods for our project in Ealing, and I must say, the experience was outstanding. A special thanks to Irmantas for his invaluable assistance. His expertise in engineered wood was evident in the quality of materials we received. The precision and quality of their engineered wood contributed immensely to the aesthetic and durability of our project. Our clients were extremely pleased with the results. Kudos to Irmantas and the Ecohardwoods team for their exemplary service and top-tier products. Highly recommend them for anyone in need of premium engineered wood supplies.
Hamilford Design have used Ecohardwood floors across multiple projects. The product is incredible and the team are extremely professional and efficient. We look forward to working with them in the future!
Our experience at Indomo Ltd has always been positive with Ecohardwood. Their flooring offers an ideal balance between quality and price while being eco-friendly, which is perfect for our clients. The prompt arrival of samples and friendly customer service made the experience smooth. We have specified their flooring throughout the spaces of our project, including the kitchen, as we trust its durability and versatility.
We popped down to the showroom last year and ordered 2-layer Ivory, brushed character planks which we saw online. It was worth the journey as the planks are as beautiful as we thought. We also wanted flooring that the builder would enjoy working with as there is a lot of floor. Fircim Bici (our builder) was really impressed with the quality. But most of all, we have lived with this floor for five months and had many comments as it how beautiful it is.
Highly motivated approach to customer service, exceptionally high quality flooring, delivered exactly on the day that was first estimated, extremely pleased and satisfied with the whole experience and will be placing another order in the next month or two for phase 2 of my flooring project.
