It doesnt rot fastReply Flint and steel: Im about to end this man whole careerReply Yes and then you will start a new deforestation…Cutting 1 tree need less than an hour, but planting one need more than 10 years..While some places trying forestation their desert, why you igniting deforestation in other part of world..Reply Right, and the termites will eat the wood in a year.

Been in boat building for years.Reply Something something, hurricanes, something something, three little pigsReply …meaning cutting down more treesReply Imagine an entire skyscraper that houses 500+ people getting wood wormsReply There is a coating they can put on concrete to reflect IR and UV… only an idiot would think this is a good idea. Wood is also less strong, bends and warps, burns, subject to infestation like termites… so many issues.

Or are we talking about undestructible materials?It is an offense to anyone who dares to think 1 second, for example, the localized fire from the video demonstration is a clean an high temperature, not the spread, smokey and low temperature fire that we all see on a real fire.Reply Sure, first came the isolated walls with air in between layers of inflammable materials for poor people, now wood skyscrapers so it would be easy to kill an entire population.The Economist, their editors believe that they can rule at us all.Reply It's a nice idea, but did you think how many trees would have to be cut, if even for one building you need two thousand trees? Besides, after cutting the trees down you would have to grow new, and do you know how terribly bad man-planted forest look like?Reply I Can Never live In a Wooden Skycraper At all!.Reply Wooden Skyscraper : existThunder/lightning : I'm about to end this skyscrapper whole careerNatural disaster : I'm about to end this skyscrapper whole career tooReply Can we produce enough wood for all that?Reply Fucker then Forest will be built will be built by dead architect ass hole idiot it's better to kill humans and keep the rise of population under controlReply but how does it do against water (rain, …) ?Reply Wow means more fire more cajuties not safeReply Jet wood can't melt steel fuel.Reply Not very smart thoughReply So basically you are telling us to cut the trees… Kudos to you.Reply oh yeahowner of the company: lets make a experiment tower made of wood that is 300 ft tall everybody: ok than, where?owner: IN THE MIDDLE OF A TOWN.
