Most of the trees growing in the Brussels region end up being either exported to oversees factories, or being shredded for use as biomass and mulch. The Sonian Wood Coop was founded to find local applications for these high quality woods. They sell milled and dried wood to Brussels’ woodworkers, and realise bespoke projects for local clients. In 2022, Sonian Wood Coop and RotorDC join forces to take things one step further: state of the art parquet floors made from Brussels wood, ready for installation.

The remainder of the lot has been sawn into boules.
