WHY WOOD?

  • Wood is a renewable resource.  Concrete and steel must be mined and are finite resources.

  • When comparing wood to concrete and steel, wood is the only resource that can be replaced faster than it is consumed.

  • More trees are growing in America's forests now than in the early 1900's.

  • Three million trees are planted every day.

  • One ton of timber creates one ton of oxygen and absorbs 1.4 tons of carbon dioxide.

  • Wood gives a lower carbon footprint to the end user than steel or concrete.
