And studies consistently show that trees improve property values. Companies that use lumber for building materials and hardwood flooring are turning to trees that mature faster, like eucalyptus.

In a managed forest these hardwood these hardwood trees can be harvested within 14 to 16 years compared to other hardwood forests where trees take twice as long to mature.
