Carbon Calculator

Calculate your project's carbon footprint by using one of the tools below.
Carbon Estimator Use this tool if you don't have information regarding the volume of wood in a specific building. Select from a list of typical wood building types, and the calculator will estimate the carbon stored and avoided greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon Calculator Enter the list of wood products in a building and receive a more precise estimate related to that specific building type and size. The more detail you provide, the better the results.
Wood products continue to store carbon absorbed by the trees during their growing cycle, keeping it out of the atmosphere indefinitely. Using wood in place of fossil fuel-intensive materials such as steel and concrete also "avoids" greenhouse gases that would have been emitted during manufacturing. Now, with the calculator tools above, it is possible to quantify these benefits for wood buildings.
