The idea that wood products have a low carbon footprint is intuitive. Wood grows naturally, using
energy from the sun, and doesn’t require large amounts of fossil fuels to manufacture. As they
grow, trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and release oxygen (O2), and wood
products continue to store carbon (C) over their lifetimes—even longer if the wood is reclaimed
and used elsewhere.
