Higher timber prices for sustainably produced tropical timber probably worldwide will be destroyed forever each year about 13 million hectares of natural forests. That’s more than the entire forest area in Germany. Illegal logging plays a large role in deforestation. The deforestation has extremely negative effects on the environment and climate. So, about 20 percent of all greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere come from deforestation of rain forests and the destruction of tropical Moore. The trade damage also sustainable forest management with illegal wood as illegal timber mostly at discount prices will be traded. According to research of the environmental Association, WWF are between 16 and 19 percent of timber imports into the European Union from illegal wood imports. Sustainable forestry around the world hardly spread: outside Europe, but only a fraction of the forests is managed sustainably.

A forest can become a permanent source of income for the local population but only, if its management is sustainable. Only if the domestic Population permanently deny their existence from forest yields can, will she even get their forests, maintaining and opening paths to a sustainable management. Away for a European wood trade law-free: Commission, Parliament and Council of Ministers of the European Union agreed several days ago on a joint Bill which would end the import of illegal timber products to Europe. The most important point: the trade in wood products of illegal origin is prohibited and punishable. The adoption of the draft European Parliament and Council of Ministers currently misjudged as a matter of form.
