TreeCoin’s Commitment To Quality Eucalyptus
We’ve extensively covered the reasons behind choosing the eucalyptus in previous blog posts. We talked about our research and how we considered many sub-species, creating a special type of hybrid eucalyptus that selectively chooses beneficial characteristics to retain. We also made sure that our Eucalyptus hybrids do not bring negative consequences to their surroundings. After all, the restoration and maintenance of the rainforest ecosystem is of utmost importance.
One other thing we looked at was to ensure that the eucalyptus trees we planted would provide high-quality wood come harvest time. After all, if we are going to harvest the trees and sell the timber for profit, then it is this end product that matters to the buyer. Wood itself as a commodity and a building material is already recognized for its attributes of durability, renewability, and affordability. You can read our post about the most common uses for timber.
Led by our co-founder and reforestation specialist in the field, Andreas Jelinek, we are working every day to ensure that the eucalyptus wood we will produce is of the highest quality.
So the next time you hear about eucalyptus, maybe you’ll remember that there’s more to it than meets the eye.
