This means that we have proven to do ecologically balanced wood exploitation and are committed to do so in the future. This guarantees a continuing supply of new wood.

The lifecycle of a tree.

The first step when chopping a tree is getting the right permit from the ministry of environment. They regulate a strict control on the ecological balance in the Belgian environment.After getting the right permit the trees are cut. The cut permit can be demanded by the owner of the forest or by Cohout itself.

After contacting us

After contacting a Cohout representative someone will visit the parcel to measure the trees and check their quality. After the initial check Cohout will calculate a price to continue the agreement. Once the agreement has been made the trees are cut by one, or multiple persons, depending on the dimensions of the parcel. After chopping the trees they are dragged out of the parcel in whole and stacked for further processing.

Quality of wood

Once all the trees are cut someone from Cohout will divide the trees in different lengths depending on the quality of the wood. Once that is done they are shipped to a customer.Bigger branches of the trees are used a firewood or are sometimes moulded to serve as food for the surface.When all the trees are cut new young trees will be planted to replace the old ones.The chopped trees are transported via truck, train or ship to the customer in cooperation with multiple trusted transporters and subcontractors

Cohout's core business

Cohout's core business consists out of two major branches. One of them being quality lumber trade and the other one being forest exploitation and logs trade. On both aspects Cohout has proven to be a worthy partner and quality wood supplier for many different industrial sectors.
