How do wood poles relate to global warming and CO2 emissions?

There are two principal ways that wood poles contribute to the efforts to minimize CO2 emissions and global warming: Carbon storage and low energy consumption. The growth of a tree is a natural process which takes carbon out of the atmosphere and when harvested moves this carbon to storage in wood products while at the same time displacing fossil intensive products like steel and concrete.. The harvested wood pole represents stored carbon while the forest from which it was removed is replanted and grows another crop of trees, renewing the taking of carbon out of the atmosphere. According to the Consortium for Research on Renewable Industrial Materials (CORRIM) “The most (carbon) storage comes from intensive short rotations harvesting before the forest growth begins to slow, storing carbon in products and substituting as early as possible for fossil intensive products. ” (For more information see: CORRIM, March 2009 Fact Sheet #5 – Maximizing Forest Contributions to Carbon Mitigation: T
