The finest “French Oak” actually comes from the Spessart forest in Germany, a forest that has been carefully managed for three hundred years and should be used as the model for worldwide sustainable hardwood management. This is a forest in which trees will only be harvested when they are fully mature, a process for white oak that takes two to three hundred years. The harvesting is done very carefully to be unobtrusive to recreational users of this resource. At the annual Spessart log auction the bidders represent the top veneer, wine barrel makers and lumber companies in Europe- they compete for this limited outstanding product.
*The finest textured white oak
*Golden brown color, very close to old growth North American white oak
*Used for fine veneers and the best wine barrels
