How is Oak kept sustainable?

Oak is a totally sustainable resource. Forestry management
schemes such as FSC® and PEFC™ are well established
throughout Europe and beyond, ensuring that European Oak remains an entirely renewable resource.

For example, France established a controlled forest
management system in 1827 and now has a staggering 524
million cubic metres of standing Oak with an annual harvest
of around 2.5 million cubic metres. As a result of this
foresight, some of the world's finest Oak is sourced from
French forests.

Hewins has held FSC® and PEFC™ accreditations since 2006.
