Environmental Benefits

 

Wolmanized® Outdoor® wood is a Green Approved product of the NAHB Research Center, and the dispersed copper treatment process is certified by SCS as Environmentally Preferable. It is a natural and environmentally responsible choice. A life cycle analysis confirms the environmental benefits of Wolmanized wood. To top it off, this wood costs less than alternatives such as tropical hardwoods and artificial wood.

 

Wolmanized® Outdoor® wood extends forest resources, allowing one tree to do the work of many. In addition to enabling wood to last a long time or resist flames or mold, our brands have all of the environmental and other advantages associated with wood itself. For example, our wood:

 • Is a renewable resource grown on managed timberlands. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, thus reducing greenhouse gases.

 • Requires less energy to produce than alternative building materials; it is made from sunlight and soil nutrients, rather than fossil fuels.

 • Offers a greater insulation value than alternatives.

 • Is lighter in weight, and can often be installed with lighter equipment which has less environmental impact.

A study conducted by the Consortium for Research on Renewable Industrial Materials (CORRIM) found that wood framed homes top concrete and steel in a life cycle assessment.

 

“After all, wood is the ultimate sustainable material. Properly harvested, trees grow, get cut down, and are replaced with more trees. Across its life cycle, no building product has lower energy consumption rates. Wood essentially acts as storage for carbon dioxide (even after it is made into construction material), and when recycled as fuel it creates more energy than was used in its production. Plus, people tend to like it.”    - Sam Grawe, Editor, Dwell Magazine, April 2008
