North American Walnut

The North American walnut (Juglans) has an extravagant appearance. In some cases, it appears in an unusual colour scheme and is nevertheless familiar.

The American walnut wood used by ZEITRAUM comes from Missouri and Pennsylvania. It is sourced from two family-owned companies, Missouri-Pacific Lumber Co. and Horizon Wood Products INC.. The two companies have been committed to sustainability from the beginning. Only individual trees are removed from the huge forests, creating optimal conditions for the natural rejuvenation of the forest, because of the removal, light reaches the young plants, which can then take the place of the felled trees, and provide their own offspring.
