The carbon cycle

Increasing focus is being given to the environment to safeguard our planet for future generations.

Growing trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere at a rate of 1 tonne for every m3 of growth, and convert it into carbohydrates through photosynthesis, whilst releasing the oxygen we breath.

The CO2 is locked away for the life of the tree, with this period further extended to the lifespan of the timber products manufactured from the tree.

By extending the lifespan of the wood by manufacturing wood based panels, the carbon can be locked away for decades to come.
