WOOD MEETS CODE
Advanced technology and modern building codes are expanding the opportunities for wood in construction.
WOOD COSTS LESS

Wood products offer advantages in terms of material, construction and environmental costs.

WOOD IS RENEWABLE

Wood is a renewable and responsible choice that helps reduce our environmental footprint.

 

 

 

The managed forest can do more

Unlike a left to themselves, forest where abide CO₂ bond and CO₂ emissions in the long term the balance, lowers the managed forest CO₂ to a considerable extent.  And through sustainable management of forest is growing steadily. Per second produces a cubic meter of wood, in which a ton of CO₂ is bound.

Management renovated the forest and reduces CO₂

Canada's forests are the product of centuries of care and use by humans. Strict Forest Act provides a framework for sustainable management. Top priority: It may no longer be harvested than grows. Therefore, the growing stock will also constantly in our forests. Old trees are removed before they begin to rot and release CO₂. This creates light and space for new trees that grow faster and capture CO₂ active again. In extracted wood remains carbon storage over the entire period of use exist. It also highlights the wood used other substances which would cause CO₂ replaced. If wood is used for energy, the bound CO₂ is free again. 

In Canada's forests are around 3.4 billion trees. In wood of trees and the forest floor a total of 800 million tonnes of carbon stored. This corresponds to approximately 3 billion tons of CO₂ bound.
