Outline

As for the ground improvement for residence, the construction method of fixing cement materials or steel pipes as piles are popular now. With our method, the thinned wood, not utilized in the local mountains of Tenryu, is used as stakes driven into the ground. In the Enshu area where there are many deep supporting beds, suitable ground improvement methods are limited. However, this wooden stake lasts long in underground water veins and is fit for the Enshu ground. Forestry, stake production and construction are all conducted by local companies, which can make local business quite profitable.
