Definition of deforestation according to Wikipedia:

"Deforestation is the removal of a forest or stand of trees where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use. Examples of deforestation include conversion of forestland to agriculture or urban use."


We do not need to explain the devastating effect caused by the world-wide ongoing deforestation. 

What counts is what we, - as builders of tropical hardwood homes -, can do about it. First of all we could terminate our business, but this will have serious consequences for all of our staff and workers. Secondly we could increase our prices with 5-fold and contribute the extra funds to the Indonesian reforestation program. The question which immediately raises is: Who will buy our houses? We could source different type of hardwood species which are not (yet) on the endangered wood species list. However, sadly enough, this will not last long. We came up with many more ideas, but none of them proved to have a solid sustainable foundation, that is to say,........... one of these ideas may work well.

This is what we would like to achieve:
We are now gradually abandon the use of Indonesian hardwood for our houses which may soon be listed as "endangered" and replace this with hardwood species which grow in abundance and wich are protected by the V-legal system <V-legal> which lists the timber sources selected from Government certified plantations, whereas a proper and continous re-forestation program is in place. 
The Pros: We will seriously contribute to the saving of Indonesia's endangered tropical forests. At least we are certain that we use "green wood".
The Cons: We may not be able to utililze some hardwoods we were used to and prices may have to be increased somewhat. However, we are of the believe that any client will be willing to pay this little contribution to safeguard Indonesia's tropical forests.

Reviews from Bali Prefab World

On November 7, 2013 typhoon Haiyan, known as typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was the second deadliest on record that hit the archipelago killing over 4,000 peoiple which we deeply regret. The system's one-minute sustained winds reached to 315 km/h (196 mph), unofficially making Haiyan the 4th most intense tropical cyclone ever observed and made it the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall on record. Our engineering department designs our units in cyclone areas to cyclone rating and have added a 10% additional wind force to the general cyclone design codes to cope with global warming, introducing stronger cyclones in the future. Our unit A-2 sustained typhoon Haiyan and survived. This is what the owner wrote us:
"There were minor damages and the roof remained fully in tact. Your clients should know though that this house was properly designed and built with typhoons in mind. Good job Bali Prefab World".
