The Baron cooperage in Cognac plants trees for the environment

The family-owned Baron cooperage will plant as many oak trees as the number of barrels they produce each year, starting this year, which is 12,000 (barrels and trees). From one tree you can make more than one barrel, but not many more. The “waste” is around 80% which of course can be used for other things. Baron will thus replant 8 hectares of forest, which corresponds to 1,400 tonnes of captured carbon dioxide. Baron was founded in 1875 and is located in the Cognacs district. (But also other oak forests in France are well-maintained and replanted as cut.)
