WHEN YOU BUILD WITH WOOD, YOU ARE BEING GOOD TO THE ENVIRONMENT.
GO GREEN WITH PRESSURE TREATED WOOD FROM EXTERIOR WOOD, INC.

Exterior Wood, Inc. has received a 2012 Certificate of Environmental Stewardship award for our efforts at recycling noting the following:

Congratulations! In 2012, your business saved over 753 barrels of oil, 267,024 kWh of energy, and 1,387 cubic yards of landfill space by recycling 92,492 pounds of plastic.

Exterior Wood, Inc. is proud that our process extends the life of forest resources, allowing one tree to do the work of many. We make wood products that are treated to last a long time in harsh environments or resist flames, and have all of the environmental advantages associated with the wood itself.

 

Wood is a renewable resource grown on managed timberlands. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, thus reducing greenhouse gases.

 

Wood requires less energy to produce than alternative building materials – it is made from sunlight and soil nutrients rather than fossil fuels.

 

Wood offers greater insulation value than alternatives.

 

Wood is lighter in weight, and can often be installed with lighter equipment which has less environmental impact.

A study conducted by the Consortium for Research on Renewable Industrial materials (CORRIM) found that wood framed homes top concrete and steel
in life cycle assessment.


Here is what the editor of Dwell Magazine, Sam Grawe,
said in the April 2008 issue:


"After all, wood is the ultimate sustainable material. Properly harvested, trees grow, get cut down, and are replaced with more trees. Across its life cycle, no building product has lower energy consumption rates. Wood essentially acts as storage for carbon dioxide (even after it is made into construction material), and when recycled as fuel it creates more energy than was used in its production."
