In order to demonstrate how increasing the use of wood will benefit the environment...
Wood and CO2 are natural partners. Trees absorb CO2 as they grow so the more forests we plant the more CO2 we can absorb.
Why on earth a wood house?
Wood is good!
Wood has the best thermal insulation properties of any mainstream construction material.
Wood has the lowest embodied energy of any mainstream building material.
3 tonnes of CO2 can be saved by using timber frame from the 20 tonne CO2 footprint of a typical 3 bedroom detached house.
Wood from sustainably managed forests can actually be better than carbon neutral.
