Wood is renewable

Responsibly sourced wood is renewable. Certified forests and plantations will regrow to provide a wide range of other benefits such as further carbon storage, oxygen generation and forest habitat.  Additionally, after decades or even centuries of use, wood buildings can be easily adapted or deconstructed and reused, which means they can continue to store carbon indefinitely. 

An exception to this would be in high conservation value forests which store large amounts of carbon and should be left untouched. Planet Ark opposes the logging of high conservation value forest for wood products as this will have negative impacts on biodiversity and carbon storage.
