Bark Signs onto Letter Re: Cross laminated timber and environmental sustainability

On behalf of our tens of thousands of members and supporters from the Portland region, and all across Oregon, we write to express our concern over the City of Portland’s investment in the Framework housing project in the Pearl District, and in other projects using cross-laminated timber (CLT).   Our organizations are committed to the protection of our public lands and ecosystems and the transition to climate smart policy at every level of government.  We understand that CLT can be either beneficial or harmful to our environment, based on the sourcing of the wood used in these products, and the production process.
