Forensic timber tracing

Tracing timber origin

Independent tools are needed to verify timber origin. We still depend on external tags and documents to check the origin of wood. Unfortunately, both can be falsified. Therefore we need tracing methods that are based on the properties of the wood itself.

This is the goal of Timtrace: we are developing a fast, accurate and cost-effective forensic tool for tracing the claimed origin of tropical timber. 

It can help companies to show their due diligence for legal, sustainable timber. It can help governments to verify trade claims and combat the illegal timber trade. And it enables us to better understand the genetic and chemical principles to explain the variation within species.
