We mainly use material from the Moulin sawmill located 500 m away from our production site to produce a 100% softwood pellet. The Moulin sawmill gets its supplies from the forests located in the Auvergne region and the Rhône-Alpes region. Today, these two forest areas are facing a strong growth in volume, which can be explained by good forestry management of those involved in the wood industry.

All the Moulinvest group team ensures today and tomorrow as well a regular management of the forest heritage so that the actual forests are more productive and of better quality for the future generations.

A few figures :

  • Auvergne forest massif = 700,000 hectares of wooded land and nearly 49% of it is coniferous.
  • Rhône-Alpes forest massif = 1,500,000 hectares of wooded land and nearly 60% of it is coniferous.

A softwood forest is composed of the following species:

  • Sapin.
  • Fir.
  • Pine.
  • Spruce.
  • Douglas fir.
