A report released Tuesday by the National Timber Association suggests that timber harvested from the U and S. coasts is harvested using traditional methods in the process of producing the timber used in furniture and other products.
The NTA’s report is the latest to highlight the environmental impact of timber harvest and the environmental impacts of industrial logging and other large-scale logging operations.
The report also says that the process for making furniture and construction materials is a waste of valuable resources.
The NTA also says many of the products manufactured with reclaimed timber can be hazardous to human health and the environment, particularly to waterways and coastal communities.
The agency says it has already identified more than 700 “environmental problems” with reclaimed lumber and expects to reach more than 10,000 by the end of this year.
The report says that timber from reclaimed timber is not a safe material to use.
It also recommends that the U, S. and Canada regulate the production and sale of reclaimed timber.
It says the timber industry needs to do more to educate consumers and regulators about the environmental benefits of reclaimed lumber.
