Thought I would pop in for my 2 cents.

I fully agree with AdvantageLumber.com Ipe is a great tree and with good practices is a great renewable source for some of the best wood I've ever seen. This is why its so important to know where your wood is coming from and how its being harvested. There are too many brokers and dealers that just want to sell without caring where the wood comes from.

Now, onto Greenpeace. Throughout all the years I've been working with wood, I have yet to find any of Greenpeace's articles credible. They have been caught red handed faking videos and even using photoshop to create false images. Its a horrible thing to do for the sake of donations.

Like Chipsetzer said, Google is an amazing tool for which I found this article as well: http://www.economist.com/news/science-and-technology/21603409-how-brazil-became-world-leader-reducing-environmental-degradation-cutting?fsrc=scn/tw_ec/cutting_down_on_cutting_down

There's a lot of research to do before buying any product but don't throw a red flag just because Greenpeace said so. While illegal logging is a problem, there are companies and nations taking the right steps to prevent it.
