German to English translations [PRO] Science - Botany
German term or phrase:biologisch wirksam
This looks like it might be related to environmental protection, but I can't find the term anywhere. Biodegradable wouldn't make sense because I don't know of any wood that isn't.
Hauptverwendung und Bearbeitungsmöglichkeiten
Vielseitig einsetzbares Holz für Innenverwertung, mit mittlerer Belastbarkeit. Gut zu drechseln, schnitzen, beizen, polieren und lackieren.
This was a tough one. dilberlin and Trudy came up with the correct translation, but Robert was first to point me to a reliable online glossary where the term of art could be found. Thank you all! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Kim, I guess, it means the plantation (woods) of alder is "biologically effective." Maybe you can find some explanation in the following document.
