Burvill, a trustee of the Woodland Trust, said: "Trees are what drew me into making furniture. It's the ability of landscape, gardens and trees to give people calm and a sense of wonder."
Referring to the Woodland Trust, he said: "It was set up by cabinet makers and furniture makers who saw that there was a disconnection between what we do and the growing of wood.
"For the future, we want to be looking at what we do to make sure we are going to get something from the trees that we are planting in our woodlands.
"I'm delighted that broadleaves are now being planted again. But a major part of the timber we use is from abroad and we could be doing something to reverse that trend."
Burvill continued: "The mantra for me is grow trees, use wood, grow trees, use wood. If people could see a few trees as examples of what can produce one of the best resources that the world has got, it would be great."
