Breathing life into unloved timber is detrimental for the survival of the remaining forests still standing and the health of the planet .
It is time to recycle timber the same way concrete and bricks get sent off to be broken down and reappear as material in the construction industry again .
Organic waste gets to become compost for the healthy gardens and landscaping material where water is in a restrictive state .
While timber in all forms , from rafters in old buildings making way for progress to furniture that is no longer wanted , that was made from species that are no longer available .
The planet is suffering from exposed landscapes a casualty of sustained land clearing that has turned once fertile lands into barren , dusty and unforgiving land.
