Pine – A Renewable Resource
Pine Furniture comes from a natural resource, which is renewable, energy efficient, and recyclable.
Modern forest management is based on the scientific principle of managing forests for sustainable wood production. Wood also has the lowest carbon footprint of any mainstream building and furniture material.
Pine is a renewable resource because of the regrowth of forests. Unlike other products, such as iron ore for steel, timber requires considerably less energy in the conversion of raw products to usable ones and in the remanufacture of material.
“One of the best ways to address climate change is to use more wood, not less.
Wood is simply the most abundant, biodegradable and renewable material on the planet.”
Dr Patrick Moore, founding member of Greenpeace
“Timber is the only renewable material for construction in the world.”
Japanese architect Shigeru Ban
Pine products can be used and reused meaning its life is well beyond that of other materials.
Pine Wood is one of the most energy efficient materials available due to it being a product of solar energy. Forests will continue to be the source of environmentally friendly products provided they are sustainably managed.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Pine timber is a natural carbon store, which requires little energy in its production.
Consumers, builders, and designers can dramatically reduce CO2 emissions by using Pine as an alternative to other products using more Pine TImber saves more CO2.
