Timber Flooring- Helping to save the planet

When you choose timber, you are not only selecting a beautifully individual floor made from a renewable resource, you’re also making a positive impact on climate change.

 

Walk On Carbon:

Timber products all sequester carbon (a long way of saying ‘storing’ carbon) from the atmosphere. Up to half the dry weight of wood is carbon that’s been absorbed from the atmosphere by trees. Lowering the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is one of the most important things we can do right now to reduce the damage associated with climate change.

 

 

It seems counter intuitive... but it's correct

Yes chopping down trees to make timber flooring is GOOD FOR THE PLANET.

How?

It promotes the forestry industry and the planting of more trees, which in turns sequesters (stores) more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Your beautiful timber floor will also inspire other people to use timber, and pretty soon increased timber use will be doing its bit for climate change.

A sustainably managed resource:

Australia's forest management is among the best in the world in terms of conservation reserves and codes of practice for production forests. Only 6% of Australia’s 147 million hectares of native forests is public forest potentially available for timber harvesting. Timber is harvested from about 1% of these public native forests each year.

A greenhouse friendly industry:

Australian forestry is one of the most greenhouse-friendly sectors of the economyand is the only industry sector to be carbon positive. That means that as an industry, forestry in Australia absorbed more carbon than it created.
