The issue concerning the utilization and sustainability of trees for lumber is vast and uncertain. If demand is higher, could it be possible that supply could surpass the demand? Knowing that growing trees would take years or decades before harvested, it is impossible to meet the growing demand.

How about its habitat destruction? Cutting of trees, especially in the wild where other growing species, can be destroyed. Pest and diseases that contaminates all kinds of hardwood and softwood truly affect the supply of timber.

There are farms that grow trees for timber purposes today but questions still hang in the air if they could supply the fast growing demand for its timber.

CITES

CITES which stands for Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species is a worldwide covenant between administrations was agreed in 1973. It has a 3 variety of levels of the species’ protection called as Appendices. These are the following agreement.

Appendix I – This first appendix signifies classes that are in the greatest threat and are measured to be disappearing with loss, and are therefore the greatest regulated in worldwide craft.

Appendix II – This second appendix comprises types that are in danger in the desolate, nonetheless automatically endangered by loss. Species in this appendage are thoroughly controlled, but are naturally not as regulated like Appendix I.

Appendix III – This third appendix covers types that a definite nation (named a“party” in CITES), has willingly demanded to be controlled in command to support reserve the species in inquiry. Appendix III types rule is lone appropriate for the exact party with a demand in its enclosure, and is consequently ample fewer restraining than first and second APPENDIX.

Though there are factually thousands of shrub species threatened in CITES, merely a percentage of these types are plants and of the involved tree species, merely a comparatively minor percentage of them are really used as timber. Therefore, the list under is a summarized and basic form of the CITES Add-ons, plus only the types of trees that are naturally used or reaped for lumber.

Generally, a listing means that the trade of a raw timber, either in the board, log or veneer in form is regulated. On few species, restriction is even greater and it includes an even finished material made of protected wood. For example is the Brazillian Rosewood to make guitars. It is already restricted to get this kind of specie across the boundary of a nation without right export permit.

A pre-convention certificate must be issued before an exporting will happen. If the finished wood product was made before a date of the listing in CITES, you cannot export the timber. Not unless if you have a written evidence obtained before the date of listing. Aside from the proofs, you need to pay for a processing fee and a 2-3 months of waiting patiently before you get the said certificates.

The importing or exporting of lumbers on CITES Appendix one and two is costly and complicated. That’s why in more cases, it is either discouraged or illegal. Restricting finished timber products is not suggested.
