For every log cabin we produce, we plant a tree in its place.
This is an essential practice. This is our real job. We take from the eco system but we must return the same effort. It is what will allow the next generation to be able to continue the process.
This is what makes us carbon neutral.
“Providing it is sourced from sustainably managed forests, wood absorbs as much CO2 during tree growth as the timber product emits at the end of its life.” – (https://www.greenregister.org.uk/civicrm/event/info?id=493 )
It is for this reason (among many others), we use Spruce timber in our outdoor buildings. Using this system allows us, to have a sustainable supply of timber, from which we can use, and reuse indefinitely. Without, exposing the planet to anymore dangerous emissions that our tress protect us from.
We all have a personal responsibility in maintaining the ecosystem. You cannot disrupt the eternal yin and yang of our climate. You cannot take without being able to give. We all have to do our bit.
