Are you serious about the environment? You need to understand the term ‘New-Sustainable’
1 1) able to maintain unused, unwanted wood fiber without carbon release
2 2) a new ecological category that claims unwanted virgin standing dead (or dying) wood fiber that otherwise is carbon released into the atmosphere
“Where Do All the Dead Trees Go”
This is a great question more should be asking as major beetle outbreaks continue to affect 30 million acres in the western United States and British Columbia, Canada. A recent study analyzed data from the United States and Canadian forest services, and estimated that since 1997, bark beetles have killed 6 billion trees.The culprit in 63 percent of the cases was the mountain pine beetle.
What happens to these dead trees?
The vast majority will simply accumulate where they fall, transforming quickly into kindling to be the catalyst and fuel for the next raging forest fire (as recently witnessed in Colorado).
Windswept Weathered Wood (Barn Wood) products are one of the very few companies that have discovered a use for these dead trees. This model of new generation of Eco-Smart fiber recovery has created a new environmental category for reclaiming a virgin product.
Windswept Weathered Wood (Barn Wood) siding, structural timbers and interior lumber are produced by using salvaged standing forests that need to be utilized before they are wasted. 100 percent sound fiber is selectively claimed from the aged and dying Engelmann spruce and Lodgepole pine trees in the Rocky Mountain regions.
Windswept WeatheredWood (Barn Wood) products are governed by industry associations equal to the same stringent grade rules for new wood. This ‘New-Sustainable’ reclaimed process is saving unnecessary carbon to be released back into the atmosphere.
