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 wood was acquired from two private family forest owners in Overijse and Zemst; the batch also includes trees that were uprooted by the Eunice storm in February 2022 on the Lorraine Dreef in Uccle: these trees were acquired from Brussels.mobility, the Brussels agency responsible for maintaining regional streets.
