BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS
PROTECTING OUR NATURAL WORLD
REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Besides an obvious sustainability appeal of Eucalyptus (they are among the fastest growing woody plants in the world), furniture and flooring made from its wood is guaranteed to be aesthetically pleasing and durable.
Eucalyptus products are ideal for outdoors use, as they have been kiln-dried and expertly treated to be able to stand up to the elements.
Axlewood chooses a value-added approach to make a sustainable impact on the South African economy. We take pride in creating jobs for local communities, from which stems beautifully made, high quality furniture.
Alien invasive plants (AIPs) pose a threat to the existence of plant and animal biodiversity in the ecosystems they invade. They need to be cleared, monitored and eventually eradicated from the landscape. Invasive Eucalypts claim 16% of the 1.4 billion cubic metres of water resources we lose every year due to AIPs. Axlewood aims to work closely with landowners and within environmental legislation to ensure the restoration of biodiversity.
