It does not matter if your home or property was built yesterday or 500 years ago.
I will still add to it with the highest level of detail, skill, enthusiasm and pride.
Similar to the ethos of carpenters from the yesteryear.
Traditional craftsmanship – contemporary thinking.
As a loving gesture to mother nature I have decided to start planting trees in an effort to help balance out some of the energy used in the process of my carpentry endeavors. Although I use timbers and oak from sustainable sources and FSC certified plantations – its not always possible for workers in certain parts of the world to partake in this accreditation. Usually due to local political and financial concerns. So my aim is to plant trees in honour of ones which are felled which perhaps should be left standing.
A single 30-meter-tall mature tree can absorb as much as 22.7 kilograms (50 pounds) of carbon dioxide in a year, which over it’s lifetime is approximately the same amount as would be produced by an average car being driven 41,500 kilometers (25,787 miles). The same tree could also produce 2,721 kilograms (5,998.78 pounds) of oxygen in a year, which is enough to support at least two people. According to the University of Melbourne, because trees grow faster the older they get, their capacity for photosynthesis and carbon sequestration increases as they age
