AUSTRALIAN CYPRESS - Callitris Glaucophilla
Environmentally Safe – Chemical Free
The earth’s atmosphere contains “greenhouse gases” including carbon dioxide. Young vigorously growing trees help to maintain the balance of atmospheric gases by absorbing carbon dioxide and storing carbon as wood.
As forests age and tree growth slows, carbon dioxide conversion declines. In sustainably managed natural forests, older trees are harvested for timber products while the new and remaining young growing trees continue to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Sustainable management of Australian Cypress forests is based upon a narural cycle of growth and regrowth that ensures future timber needs, and protects the natural environment whilst providing a safe haven for flora and fauna.
