Our commitment to sustainability saves more than 2.3 million gallons of fuel oil. By choosing to use sawdust – a byproduct of operations – to power our kilns, we continue to save 240 gallons of fuel each day. As of August 30, 2023, we have conserved 2,335,440 gallons of fuel oil. That’s the equivalent of filling the typical 275-gallon oil tank, found in many homes, 8,492 times. If an oil tank is filled six times a year, that’s enough oil for approximately 1,415 homes!
Trees are a renewable resource which is the first step towards sustainability. The amount of power used to mill the trees into logs is far less than what is used to cut trees into dimensional lumber for standard stick built homes.
