Company tour

Tour of the company


Our premise is sustainable forestry. The well-known and demanded principle of sustainability has its origins in the early 18th century. Sustainable forest management was demanded, that means that not more wood is harvested than growing. The long-term use of nature by humans can only be build on the idea of economical and sustainable use of natural resources. The cultivation of wood should be aligned to consistency and continuity. Hereby, it is important to take the quality of the locations climate, soil, size of the area and the amount of wood into account. Contents of our daily work – 300 years later still up-to-date!

Tegernseer customs

On your request, we separate according to Tegernseer customs. The customs are available between companies, also business people. They also apply if they have not been explicitly agreed and even if one of the business people involved does not know the customs. The customs do not apply if they have been expressly excluded in the run-up to the trading action. The “customs in the domestic trade concerning round timber …” do not only apply concerning the timber trade, but concerning all who trade in wood and do business with it. The customs do also apply to traders who act as buyers, i.e. joiners, carpenters, building contractors, etc.
