Fast Facts | Mass Timber
What is mass timber? It's a building material that's as strong as steel, lighter than concrete, fire resistant, and carbon friendly.
Our forests are home to the most technologically-advanced material and processes we have. Built and run on solar energy, they lock away carbon and provide light, strong, renewable materials.
Already, mass timber construction helps us build faster and more efficiently, while keeping carbon locked away. Innovative wood and paper products – renewable, recyclable and biodegradable – help store carbon, reduce waste, and protect wildlife.
