Forestry plays an important role for the environment and countering the effects of climate change. Not only do trees bank carbon during thier growing period, carbon remains locked in timber beyond harvest. Trees provide oxygen, clean the air and water, and provide habitat for many species (including us).
Aluminium, steel, concrete and plastics are non-renewable and use large amounts of fossil fuels to produce. Wood is 100% renewable, reusable, and biodegradable. If wood didn't exist, we would invent it!.
Here at Urban Woodwork I only use timber from renewable resources (including Accoya.) and for every product I make* I will fund 1 NZ native tree plantnig via treesthatcount.co.nz
* Over the value of $500. Per item, per client.
