The raw timber for the wood beams and slabs used in 320 and 360 Wythe come from sustainably managed Canadian forests. These forests are rigorously overseen.

Less Waste

New technologies have allowed engineered wood products to retrieve and utilize more viable tree fibers than any other previous process, including the crown and small branches usually left behind in the forest.

Reduced emissions

Wood production emits much less carbon dioxide (CO2)— a potent greenhouse gas —than the production of concrete or steel. In addition, growing trees trap atmospheric CO2 and lock it away within their fiber. And, once the CO2 sequestered in its fiber is counted, wood is actually carbon negative.
