Pole to pole, coast to coast, homes are still being built with our natural forests

Across North America, the longstanding tradition continues. Folks still love their wood built structures. And if it is not entirely built out of wood as the case may be for the old forest cabin, you will still notice that many homes still have wood as prominent features for both practical and aesthetic purposes. Canada and the United States of America are two of the world’s largest countries. Large tracts of land are made up of natural forests.

And in many other spaces, new forests have been planted. It has been deemed that all of this is very good for the environment. This is encouraging when you take into account just how serious the problems of global warming and climate change remain. Today, your traditional and reliable utility pole supplier is also on board in the drive to protect your environment. Today, he is an ardent supporter of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative is a non-profit organization devoted to improving sustainable forest management across the continent. This is all in the interest of preserving forests as the valuable natural resource that it has always been but not always healthily appreciated. To ensure that forests are allowed to flourish, your wood pole supplier continues to have healthy relationships with responsible land owners and related timber companies.

These companies need to remain sustainably responsible too to ensure that natural wood stocks are not oversupplied and wasted. Selective harvesting reforestation techniques are also in place to ensure that forests are preserved. The utility pole on its own is a renewable and resilient resource. It is resistant to oxidation, corrosion, crumbling and spalling. There are appropriately treated to ensure that productive wood is protected from fungi and termites.
