Why is it important to use sustainable woods in building construction? If you are aiming for LEED certification, materials make a huge difference. If the deforestation of slow-growing trees worries you, you should explore other options.
When you scrutinize, the qualities various woods have, be aware of the benefits of using eucalyptus poles. And not only as a necessary alternative but as one of the top choices for construction projects.
36 million acres of natural forests are lost each year, a rate that cannot continue. Eucalyptus wood plantations around the world, particularly in tropical climates, produce mature trees in just 15 years. This timeframe is incredibly short compared to most traditional timber woods.
Strong and versatile properties
Eucalyptus is comparable to white oak and hickory in strength and can withstand denting and tension. Compared to white oak, it is much more resistant to brown rot fungus. It is less expensive than other traditional materials like mahogany, hickory, and cherry woods.
Eucalyptus wood also has good machining and turning properties. It sands to a smooth semi-polished surface and absorbs stains evenly. As such, eucalyptus is ideal for broad and narrow flooring, custom millwork, staircases. It is also perfect for solid and veneer cabinetry, wall panels, and residential and commercial applications.
