Going Green

How is Schmidt Custom Floors Green?

Wood is produced in a natural factory called a forest by a renewable energy source called the sun. Wood is a naturally-renewable resource, and it is also recyclable. Old wood from ships, warehouses, barns, and other structures often find a second life in wood flooring. Wood flooring is also the most abundantly-renewable flooring material available. Sustainable forest management makes it possible to harvest wood without any negative impact on the environment, because trees are a renewable resource that can be replaced time and time again. Every year, 35 million trees are planted in forest lands of Wisconsin. That’s five new trees for every one harvested. Wisconsin has long been considered a national leader in reforestation practices.
