Japan is known to be the world's largest importer of tropical timber. 29% of total production is destined for Japan. In addition, in some areas, such as Indonesia, Japanese companies are the main forest exploiters.
On the other hand, most of the tropical wood that goes to Japan is used in construction, but not in the construction of beams or pillars, as you could imagine, but in the manufacture of wooden molds to sustain the concrete. In most cases, in addition, the tables used for this are removed and discarded. On the other hand, Japan should not import wood. Most of this village consists of hills and hills covered with forests. However, cutting down native trees is more expensive than their external contribution.
