The article discusses the role of wood preservation in reinforcing campaigns concerning the carbon dioxide storing capacity of timber. It notes that the New Zealand (NZ) wood campaign on the carbon storing nature of wood would have more impact at the government policy level if changes could be made to some of the provisions in the Emission Trading Schemes (ETS). These changes include the substitution of biofuel for fossil fuel as an energy source and correcting the idea that the carbon dioxide storage of trees becomes diminished when it is felled.
