Organic alternative

Domestic Black Locust is a sustainable alternative to endangered tropical hardwoods (Ipe or Teak), chemically treated lumber and decay prone woods. The Rainforest Alliance lists Black Locust among of the most preferred alternatives to tropical hardwoods for outdoor applications. The harvesting of rainforest tropical hardwoods is unsustainable; the event of transporting the wood to market is ecologically unfavorable. Black Locust serves as an organic alternative- it does not require treatment or finishes- to pressure treated lumber, which is treated with a wide variety of Red List chemicals and lasts a fraction of the lifetime compared to Black Locust, and over its lifespan will leach chemicals into the surrounding environment.
