First and foremost, make a note that the use of wood in all or most constructions, as well as in smaller items for everyday use, was not always sustainable. In the past, vast forests were raised just to produce a small volume of books. Paper being produced from forest trees, even more damage was done in the past when it comes to printing your daily newspapers or monthly magazines. So, you could imagine the more onerous results when it came to a large lumber of wood being prepared for heavy duty industries.
And then there is still the enduring tradition of building those picturesque houses with wood over the years. Even after a hurricane has gone and torn it all down, people still persist in rebuilding with wood. But if you enjoy the use of wood in your own homes, farms or businesses, you need not feel guilty about continuing with this traditional practice. Because today, the wood utility poles for sale at your nearest depot have been prepared and treated through highly sustainable measures.
And it begins right in the middle of the forest. Wood utility poles are only sourced from land that has been specially prepared to plant new trees, acres of it, in fact. By the time lumberjacks have cut down a few trees, even more young trees are sprouting up somewhere else. And no trees are removed from land that has been preserved for re-growth. The sustainability exercise goes further, and this is where it benefits you mostly.
Wood utility poles are treated with specially prepared resins to ensure that no pests, termites in particular, are able to bug your wood paneling and structures if you will. And the treatment also ensures that your wood lasts for years longer than would have been the case before.
