Why utility wood is sustainable and environmentally friendly

The term ‘utility’ needs to be briefly explained for layman readers out there. It can be looked at in two different ways. Firstly, having utility wood available means that you always have spares or effective backups readily available when urgent maintenance or repairs on your wide property need to be carried out. This could be as a result of a particularly heavy storm and wood serves a useful purpose for temporary stop-gap repairs until such time that the main work can be completed.

But why not make this wood a permanent feature of your property’s fixtures and fittings? If you do not have any such wood in your shed or workshop, you can rest assured that there are always wood utility poles for sale, especially for when you need them the most. The utility aspect in the second instance refers, in part, to its sustainable features. The wood has been treated with environmentally friendly coating resins.

These lacquers act as good barriers against extreme and wet weather. Treated wood is not allowed to rot unnecessarily. Another combatant is that of the (previously) ever present wood termite. Wherever there is wood, you can be sure there will be termites. They need a place to call home as well. And they are actually onto something. Provided that your buildings and rooms have been properly constructed, wood can keep you warm in winter months and cool during the summer months.

Treated wood is sustainable because its protective coatings allow it to last for more than twenty years. Wood not coated does not last that long. It is environmentally friendly because the wood sourced comes from organically cultivated forests and not from areas of land that had previously been regarded as natural and needed to be preserved.
