Not only local woods tend to ract better to our climate either during the summer when the humidity is high, or during the winter when our homes are very dry, they also come from nearer. The wood we purchase doesn't have to travel from the other side of the world. We're sure our planet appreciates. Finaly, these woods are non toxic, easy to dye, sand and machine. They have proven their value as furniture materials many times.
