Recently, damage from insects has spread even to famous trees in the Tenryu area. Most plywood factories are far from the area, so the Tenryu trees cannot be utilized even if they are cut down. Along with local companies, we developed a composite beam using insect-damaged Hinoki and Japanese cedar. The beam, made of Hinoki for the upper and the lower layers and cedar for the middle one, has almost the same flexural strength as that of only Hinoki, and this material is inexpensive. Local companies like ours manage from forestry to house construction. Local companies can solve local problems.
