They contain over 12,000 lbs of green house gasses. This green house gas will never be seen again.

 If these trees were not used in this manner, then the gases contained in these trees would be released back into the atmosphere.

Can you see it for the Trees?

The Bridge…

In Tyler, Texas they could.

Faulkner Park in Tyler, Texas needed a bridge to access an area of the park’s woodland trails.

The bridge had to be large enough to allow for small vehicle usage and yet built in such a way as to not damage the woodland habitat.

So, can you see it? Built in two days – with small equipment – and able to hold up 40,000 lbs. The treated wood used also contains 14,000 pounds of green house gases that will never be seen again. I think Tyler has earned a BIG STAR.

A BIG   GREEN   STAR.
