Ghana to sell wood to french government worth $50 Million

Business

Huge tropical trees that have been submerged beneath Ghana’s lake Volt for more than 5 decades could be used to reconstruct a cathedral at Notre-Dame in France according to BBC Africa.

The Ghanaian company that holds government concession to harvest the wood has submitted a proposal to the French government for consideration to supply this wood for the reconstruction of Notre-Dame Cathedral that was razed down by flames in April 2019.

The company urges that the use of this wood to reconstruct the cathedral is environmentally friendly compared to cutting down new trees,  adding that using wood from Lake Volta would help restore Notre-Dame to its original state.

French preservation group Fondation du Patrimoine, has already indicated that France no longer has giant oak trees of the same size and maturity that were used to build the original structure.

The proposal has already been acknowledged by the French ministry of Culture and the company says it would sell to the french government wood worthy $50 million

However, concerns have been raised about the possible negative impact harvesting wood from Lake Volta could have on the local ecosystem.

A report in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives said pulling trees from lake beds can pollute the water with sediment, thereby blocking the light needed by aquatic organisms to survive.
