Welcome to Rustbelt Underground!
With intensified interest in environmental impact and green building, here are a few attributes that make wood a good choice. It's also important to understand how engineered wood products can be used to meet the emerging standards and requirements for green building.
Wood is renewable, like any crop. Engineered wood products can use smaller trees from well-managed forests, saving old growth for future generations to enjoy. Forest land comprises about 33 percent of total U.S. land area. Demand for more engineered wood products encourages forest land owners to maintain healthy forest regeneration, which in turn helps absorb more greenhouse gases.
Environmentally friendly, beautiful and lasts a lifetime... and beyond!
