What if we used wood as a construction material for high buildings ? Given how many trees we are planting to fight climate change, we are not going to lack from it any time soon if we manage it sustainably.
Back to June the New York Times published an interesting article on how this is done in London where a company built a nine-story building using mostly cross-laminated timber, or CLT.
And this is only the beginning as soon construction made from wood could sprout all around the world. CLT is indeed much more fire-resistant than common wooden material.
