BarroNica fires their tile with wood cultivated specifically for use in tile kilns. Presently, there are over 300,000 eucalyptus trees that have been planted that are harvested in such a way that the tree keeps growing and can be harvested again in 4-5 years. With each harvesting, the root system gets stronger and produces harvestable wood at a faster rate. Please see the following specification sheet describing, in more detail, the elements of this credit.
