The municipal forest managed by Trifels NATUR GmbH and its wood products are certified according to PEFC standards. A certified forest area of more than 225 million hectares makes PEFC the world’s largest forestry label. Its aim is to establish sustainable forest management in a wide scale and, thus, to ensure the conservation of forest ecosystems for future generations. Since the establishment of PEFC Germany in 1999 about two thirds of the German forest area (more than 7.3 million hectares) have been certified. More and more woodworking and wood processing companies join the PEFC forest conservation initiative. At the moment, almost 1,100 companies are PEFC-certified and, thus, offer products with the PEFC label.
