My top priority for a long time is fighting these injustices
in South America and in particul Brazil and the Amazon
that is why I hope Eucalyptus flooring
and trees will not be part of this
and suggest the growth of fair trade and
fair labor practices surrounding the lumber industry
and in particular the Eucalyptus tree or lumber industry .
If such a thing existed then Eucalyptus would be a good choice
for flooring needs and companies.
It grows quickly is dense and durable
and can be grown on a more rugged terrain
than other trees of its type .
Perhaps even a regrowing project on abandonned and clearcut
land could be proposed including the eucalyptus tree.
However due to the companies policy of not importing
tropical lumber this project is no longer
a viable alternative .
