The campaign is based on several core facts: each backed by evidence and research set out below. Read more about the evidence behind the facts, and use the buttons below to navigate through the facts or return to the Wood CO2ts less home page. 





Fact 2


Mature trees are harvested and their carbon is captured and stored in buildings and other wood products

2, making a key contribution to reducing levels of atmospheric greenhouse gases.”
