Our ECO card series rattles along to the wood known as the “Mother of the Forest” – Beech wood, a European straight grained hardwood that produces fascinating looking cards.
Beech wood is a dense heavy wood that is a mainstay of European woodworkers due to both its hardness and strength, combined with its low cost.
Given the optimum soil conditions, beech wood can grow to extremely large sizes, as tall as 130ft with a 3 to 5ft trunk diameter, with beech forests scattered around Europe to make it a highly sustainable option.
Often used for furniture, beech wood is regarded as the “Mother of the Forest” as its presence aides the survival of many other hardwood trees, whilst the powerful roots of a beech tree penetrates deep into the ground, helping to anchor and protect the forest during storms and floods.
