Some good examples of sustainable wood include bamboo, cane, mango, and plants mature rapidly and can be continuously replanted instead of cutting trees from tropical rain forests.

Timber and wood products, such as poles, from indigenous trees in African dry forests and woodlands are used locally to meet basic needs and to generate income. 7 SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS WE SAW AT GREENBUILD Coeur d’Alene Wood offers the look of reclaimed wood but is made with new, naturally rot-resistant Alaskan yellow cedar.

The wood is put through a patented, foot environmental chamber that ages the wood, delivering the look of years of weathering and coloration without the use of paints, stains, or VOCs.
