As the timber-framed-building industry grows, there is increased pressure on finite timber supplies. Maple Hill Tree Services avoid this problem by building timber frame houses from salvaged wood.
The Canadian company use wood that has been felled because of disease or development, that would otherwise have gone to landfill or been burned as firewood. Their frames are erected within a hundred mile radius of the company to minimise haulage. All the wood is local with no carbon footprint to speak of.1
