Wood is a natural solution to tackle climate change

It is a renewable resource and once it is harvested it continues to store carbon during the lifespan of the product.

After harvesting, replanted forests and plantations provide more carbon storage because growing trees act as a sink to absorb carbon dioxide (CO2).

When forests get older they reach a state of carbon equilibrium and the carbon they capture each year equals the amount they release through decay.

This means that a harvested and regenerated forest or plantation captures more carbon from the atmosphere than forests that are not harvested.

Choosing wood supports the ongoing harvest and regeneration cycle allowing for the continued removal of carbon from the atmosphere while providing environmentally-friendly products.
