Sustainability

Wood is a renewable resource and the only major building material that helps tackle climate change challenges. Forests remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, known as carbon sequestration. Depending on growth rate and wood density, a hectare of pine trees locks up 4-7 tonnes of carbon per year, equivalent to 15-26 tonnes of carbon dioxide absorbed from the atmosphere. When the tree is responsibly harvested the carbon is locked in the wood and remains there for the life of any products made with that timber.
