Greenpeace Good Wood Guide

Greenpeace 's Good Wood Guide is a tool that can be used to help tell the difference between illegally logged timber from Indonesia and Papua New Guinea and timber that has been derived
from sustainably managed sources.

Greenpeace is encouraging eco-forestry practices where traditional people learn to selectively harvest timber in a sustainable manner ensuring that ancient forests are preserved.

In Australia, Merbau is a common rain forest timber that is used in outdoor applications but is typically sourced through illegal logging.
