    Yes, lumber construction is far better than concrete. While the wood (carbon) used in construction is tied up for a long time, cut trees no longer capture carbon. It takes a good amount of time for growth to reach high levels of carbon capture again, whereas a sugarbush continues to suck up carbon steadily.
