Casey Roscoe, Sr. Vice President of Public Relations, Seneca Sawmill, Seneca Jones Timber Company, & Seneca Sustainable Energy joined us to discuss all of the things you never knew about the forests and how they impact our lives. Did you know that you can create electricity from the scraps of the milling process. Did you know that you can even make transparent windows from wood? Listen to our discussion below to find out how.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has concluded that "In the long-tern, a sustainable forest management strategy aimed at maintaining or increasing forest carbon stocks, while producing an annual sustainable yield of timber, fibre, or energy from the forest, will generate the largest sustainable mitigation benefit." Casey discusses the report above and reasons why globally we need to be using more wood and wood products, as well as how we can do so.
