Dec. 19, 2019 – TreeHugger – It also can put people back to work and save our forests. TreeHugger has been covering the mass timber scene for a dozen years, starting with Waugh Thistleton’s timber tower in Hackney. Now Tim Smedley of the BBC talks to Andrew Waugh and writes a really thorough article that looks at the benefits of building with wood. He starts, as we do, with the carbon footprint, and the fact that trees are the best form of carbon capture and storage.
