    hello community

    I am new here - but I was with the first "Hippies", who brought the Love Parade
    from Goa to Berlin - I am 60 Years old now

    I have the Desire to trade precious Wood from Forestries

    in my Opinion, it is a fascinating Meterial - it is worthfull - and it is a beautifull natural Resource

    I looking for Hippies around the World, who are interested in dealing and trading
    this Material - maybe we can build up an interresting Income by Time

    I will give you some Examples:

    in Thailand, there are plenty of Rubber Trees - once this Trees are in "Age" and do not anymore
    provide the raw Material, they will be cutted down to make Place for new Rubber Trees

    Rubber Wood is a very durable Wood - so I could imagin to trade Rubber Wood from Thailand
    to other Countries

    Where are you living ? anw hat Kind of precious Wood from Forestry you could get your Hand on?
    What are the Prizes and what Kind of precious Wood in your Place?

    i think it's illegal to move wood out of the county here, to prevent the spread of invasive insects.

    I think certain countries require treated or aged wood, to avoid the spread of pests (see sudden oak disease), protection of rare woods, and I believe there's a ghastly amount of paperwork involved.
    I've been held at borders while guitars built in 1920 were checked for wood source.
    (this rarely goes well)

    I travel with musicians (I work tech) crossing US/Canada border.
    Canada is more rigorous on CITES, etc.
