Domestic Wood Species: Select with Sustainability and Carbon Emissions in Mind

In the world of architectural design and construction, the choice of building materials plays a pivotal role, influencing the aesthetic appeal and a structure’s sustainable commitment and functional aspects. With the growing emphasis on sustainability and reducing carbon emissions, staying well-informed and possessing the knowledge to design and build with sustainable materials has become more crucial by the day.

The Sylva product line embodies this commitment, showcasing a domestic species harvested from FSC©-Certified, polyculture forests in Pennsylvania, where reSAWN is based. Locally sourced North American Red Oak minimizes transportation-related carbon emissions, aligning with eco-friendly building practices. In the architectural design and construction stages of a project, opting for building materials sourced and produced domestically significantly contributes to minimizing the environmental footprint associated with construction projects.
