Timberlyne Green Sustainability

At Timberlyne we want to build beautiful spaces, while keeping the environment front of mind. Fortunately for us, wood is not only attractive, but has a lighter carbon footprint than many other building materials.

Natural Beauty

Wood requires less energy to produce, transport, construct and maintain over time, making our chemical-free wood the perfect building material.

Because wood grows naturally, using energy from the sun, it is the only major building material that is renewable, reusable and sustainable. It outperforms other materials in terms of energy use, greenhouse gases and air pollution. The USDA actively promotes wood as the superior green building material. In addition, the flexibility of wood makes it an ideal building material for earthquake safety or high wind.

Did you know maximizing wood use in both residential and commercial construction could remove an estimated 21 million tons of C02 from the atmosphere annually – equal to taking 4.4 million cars off the road?

Carbon Cycle

Did you know that as trees grow, they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere, release the oxygen and incorporate the carbon into their body. Even after trees are manufactured into products, they will continue to store carbon keeping it out of the atmosphere of the building. 80% of a building's embodied carbon comes from the materials used to construct it. When compared to concrete and steel, wood performs best with air and water pollution and keeps a lower carbon footprint.

Did you know? Active forest management, or forest thinning, mitigates wildfires cuts carbon emissions, replenishes area waterways, expands wildlife habitat, and creates jobs in rural areas.


Pre-manufacturing Process

Timberlyne construction starts with pre-cut bents, clearly labeled materials and numbered plans. These and other energy efficient details reduce project and product waste. Building in this controlled work environment also helps reduce waste. Any scrap wood left over is donated and recycled.

Carbon Calculator

When a tree is harvested, they are only harvested once they have absorbed as much carbon as they will absorb in their lifetime. This means that half the weight of the dried wood is carbon that has been captured forever. Estimate the wood carbon footprint of your project with WoodWorks Carbon Calculator.

North America has more certified forests than anywhere else in the world. Modern forestry standards ensure a continuous cycle of growing, harvesting and replanting.
