Why Choose Southern Yellow Pine? Strong, Beautiful & Renewable.
It’s the Environmentally Friendly Choice!
If you are looking for an affordable, eco-friendly and
chemical-free alternative to imported furniture, look no further.
Our line-up is 100% American made from sustainably
managed US Forests. In fact, Southern Yellow Pine is our
nations most abundant and sustainably harvested wood resource
and has been an integral part of American history,
from ship building to flooring, since Revolutionary times.
Quite simply there is no other furniture line
that offers such “sustainable” value.
Southern Yellow Pine is a clean, renewable, nontoxic, recyclable, bio-degradable &
energy efficient building material. It grows fast and is literally farmed like any other
food supply. 199 Million acres of forest replanted in the South East US — every year!
Forests are the lifeblood of our planet. Healthy and growing trees absorb
carbon dioxide (sequester carbon) and release pure oxygen. But everything must be made
from something and most other furniture materials, like steel and plastics, are not Earth
friendly in addition to consuming non-renewable resources (iron ore, oil, other chemicals).
It’s Renewable! SYPine is the most sustainably renewed species of tree in the world!
It is renewed at a greater rate than it is harvested. While about 4 million tree seedlings are
planted every day in the U.S., over 3 million of these are Southern Yellow Pine babies!
That’s over 1 Billion seedlings planted every year in the US — that’s a whole lotta pine!
It’s Non-toxic! In its natural form, unfinished, it does not release any toxic gases or fumes
into the atmosphere. It’s completely clean and chemical free.
It’s Recyclable! It can be re-used and re-worked and put into different shapes and sizes
over and over. It can be cut, re-glued, shaped, carved, distressed — You name it.
It’s Bio-degradable! It will de-compose on its own and return to the Earth’s cycle to add
nutrients and life to the soil. So you can just bury our furniture when you are done using it.
It’s Energy Efficient! Compared to other manufactured materials such as steel, aluminum
and plastics, turning a tree into sawn lumber requires far less energy with lower CO2
emissions/pollution. In addition, SYPine has unique “energy capacity” properties that make
it the #1 choice for building the next generation of homes pioneered by Enertia® — homes
using a “natural architecture” that literally heat and cool themselves, just like the earth!
It’s the Ultimate Eco-Friendly material! No doubt about it, nothing compares to fast
growing, Southern Yellow Pine that is sustainably harvested and manufactured in the USA
when compared to other materials to maintain the health of our environment.
And let’s not forget that Pine Smells Great & Looks Great! Plain and simple, it’s just
