Wood as a resource

The use of wood has always been associated with large scale deforestation. However,
this is a huge misconception

  • Forests or trees can be considered non-renewable if trees are cut faster than they are grown back. However, if an equal number of trees are planted in the same area as the number of trees cut, it becomes a renewable and sustainable source of energy. This has become the de-facto method of tree cultivation in most parts of the world.
  • Wood also takes lesser time to be replaced as compared to other products. If coal has to be replaced, it might take a few million years whereas wood can be replaced in 5 or 10 years.
