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.
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?
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.
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.
