I’m D’03 German Spruce/mahogany owner. I’m Italian and I live in Alps near Swisse border and near Farinet Family’s area. Not far I have Trentino/Paneveggio lands (the wood preferred by Stradivari). In my mountainous region we have very different micro clima spot area. I think that any mountain side have different quality of red spruce. The forest culture and management is also very important to get hight quality spruce wood. Not all region alp is same. I think that german (I think Bavarian region) management of spruce wood is traditionally good. Is that right what I say? Do you have different news?
