Eschen wachsen auf frischen bis feuchten Böden, häufig entlang von Wasserläufen. Sie sind überwiegend in Mittelwäldern anzutreffen, wo sie rasch wachsen und eine Wuchshöhe von 30 m und einen Stammdurchmesser von bis zu 1 m erreichen können. Eschenholz ist cremeweiß bis blassbraun oder grau. Der Faserverlauf ist gerade und aufgrund seiner optisch ansprechenden hellen Poren ist es als Ausstattungsholz beliebt.
The Ducerf Group
In 1885, Jean Ducerf installed his first sawmill in Burgundy in the heart of the best forests in Europe. The place was ideal for developing his activities and having permanent access to oak and other hardwoods.
From generation to generation, the family group expanded. He grew the business, invested in newsites in France, put innovative processes in place, exported to many countries and evolved at the same time as the market. Therein was his strength: adapt and innovate while respecting the material and those who worked with him.
At Ducerf, wood is holistically, together with all its applications. The group integrated the processes of 1sttransformation and 2nd transformation of hardwoods, always with oak as the main species.
Concerned for the environment, the family enterprise has adopted an eco-responsible approach in their daily activities. Waste is recycled, the wood commes from sustainably managed forests, the teams travel to site by bicycle.
Today, it's the fourth generation of Ducerf, represented by Jacques Ducerf, that's in charge of the Group, with the fifth generation already in action at Jacques' side!
A family history that makes the Ducerf Group one of the leaders in the timber industry.
A group whose motivations were never in doubt: Quality, Innovation, Passion.
