Forests cover 30% of global land area. 70% of terrestrial animals and plants live in forests. Currently the world’s forests store 283 billion tons of carbon in their biomass. In 2021 the international building industry will be allowed to erect wood structures up to 18 stories tall from mass timber.
Today, the max height is 4 stories. Architects, city planners, real estate developers, universities, apartment and office buildings will soon be made of beautiful natural wood. And, they need your help to design, build and occupy them.
