Just as the climate crisis demands we transition to renewable energy sources, so too do we need to transition to renewable materials. Wood was one of the earliest renewable materials adopted by human civilization, and remains important today.
New wood construction techniques, paired with new approaches to sustainable forest management, now enable a powerful opportunity to prevent damaging climate change, create a sustainable society, build rural economic opportunity in New England, and improve housing quality and equity. We invite you to learn more about these new mass timber construction techniques and their climate benefits on this resource-rich website.
