Imported timber prices rise 23% in just one month.

According to the latest data provided by BEIS (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy), the price of imported sawn or planed timber jumped by more than a fifth between June and July, it is currently 64 per cent more expensive than it was in July 2020.

Imported plywood was up 12% more in July than in June and up 82% over the past year.

 ‘Both private housing and RM&I need plenty of softwood timber, and these are the two sectors that, along with infrastructure, have been leading demand within a resurgent construction industry. At the same time, supply has become tighter in July as sawmills and timber production facilities in Sweden and other European countries close for essential summer maintenance.” said David Hopkins, the chief executive of the Timber Trade Federation (TTF).

Timber has consistently been one of the materials facing the most severe shortages and prices hikes.

A new survey has revealed that three out of five SMEs say the current materials shortages and inflation are a “significant threat” to their businesses.

TRADINGTIMBER WELCOMES 2021

A new year begins and we couldn’t be more excited about it. The past year has been a challenging one that has led many companies to reorganize and readjust to a new reality, the pandemic that the world is going through.

Tradingtimber tried, from the first day, to create a feeling of safety for both its employees and its customers, so that the business could continue without suffering almost any damage.

Today, regarding the data from the past year, we can say that we have successfully completed this intention.

In a year where several companies had to close their doors temporarily or permanently, Tradingtimber managed to maintain its growth compared to previous years.

We appreciate the loyalty of our customers and the effort of our employees to maintain a climate of professional stability that was reflected in the closing of accounts in 2020.

We hope that 2021 will allow new contracts to be entered into and that we will be able to further strengthen our connection with customers from previous years, as well as new customers.

 

 

Congo Basin: “green lung” threatened by deforestation

The second green lung on the planet is being threatened by the growing demand for food, wood, and coal, the lack of economic opportunities, and the illegal trade in species.

The giant forest is distributed in six countries: Congo Democratic Republic, Congo Republic, Gabon, Cameroon, Central African Republic, and Equatorial Guinea.

“We urgently need to understand how Central African forests work to create sustainable plans that benefit communities, climate and biodiversity at the same time,” said Paolo Cerutti, one of the world’s leading experts on the subject and responsible for the Training, Research and Development Project.

There’s a vast flora that has more than 10 thousand plan species and is rich in both plant and animal biodiversity. The Congo Basin also regulates the climate and rain patterns in the world.

The main causes for the region degradation are coal production and slash and burn agriculture, followed by logging and mining.

“Normally, artisanal loggers selectively cut the trees that are of interest to the joinery and construction sectors, then the local population cuts the rest of the trees to make charcoal and, in the last stage, burns all the vegetation in the region to grow food such as manioc. Productivity is very low and the land soon runs out, which is why the cycle repeats itself elsewhere, progressively devouring the forest” explains scientist Silvia Ferrari, cited by the newspaper El Pais.

Brazil Deforestation: alerts rise to 34,5% in Amazon

According to the Space Research Institute (INPE), when comparing to last year July, there has been a big growth in the numbers of alerts in the Amazonia due to deforestation.

In the last twelve months, the number of alerts covers a total of 9.205 km2 of the world’s biggest tropical forest.

The so-called “deforestation alerts” allow that the state environmental agencies reinforce the control on those areas, monitored by satellites without indicating a specific data of loss of vegetation.

The Climate Observatory, an alliance of organizations in the Brazilian civil society that discusses climate change, criticized the government policy who believes is responsible for the fast devastation of Amazonia.

The deforestation explosion of the Amazon has an important cause the speech of the President of the Republic, which delegitimizes environmental inspection while stimulating the occupation of the region in a predatory model”, stressed Suely Araújo, senior specialist in Public Policies.

Hamilton Mourão, vice president of the country, coordinates an intergovernmental council for the Amazonia and compromised to endorse the region politics, these include the mobilization of 4.000 soldiers of the Forças Armadas, to patrol the region and contain environmental crimes.

Amazon is the biggest World’s tropical forest and owns the biggest biodiversity registered in the planet area.

Brazil: trees for China becomes a threat to Amazon Rain Forest

 

Brazilian farmers’ slash-and-burn clearing of parts of the Amazon rain forest for agricultural purposes has become a concern for environmentalists.

Some farmers are also clearing forest areas for cattle ranching to meet China’s growing demand for beef.

China’s role in importing timber from the world’s largest tropical rain forest, a major undertaking that could result in a significant increase in carbon emissions from Latin America’s largest country. The trees are currently playing a positive role in absorbing some of the carbon dioxide emissions that are driving global warming.

China is the world’s largest importer of timber, so Brazil is not the only country where timber is being extracted for Chinese usage. But Brazil has drawn attention because of the impact that a major loss of trees can have on climate change.
