Ever wonder why TallPines Forest Products uses only 100% pine wood shavings and pellets in our bedding line? (Don't tell anyone we have cedar too, but that is a specialty bedding.)
The answer is incredibly simple. Pine shavings are still the best option for almost all animals.
Let's talk about why Eastern Sweet Pine is a triple win. First, our lumber mills have to shave down planks of wood in order to sell premium grades of lumber for housing. Shavings and sawdust are the byproduct of this process which is what we get to use for bedding. Shavings and sawdust would become trash, or it would be burned off if it was not used as bedding for animals. The first win goes to landfills.
The second win is for the animals themselves. Our lumber is always 100% natural, virgin timber. There are no additives or chemicals used in the process of getting our shavings off the board. Your animals only sleep in the highest quality pure pine shavings. Win number 2.
Win number 3 is for the environment. ALL of the mills we work with use their own logs from tree farms. Trees are constantly cut down and then re-planted which means the impact on the overall evironment is minimal at best. There is never any bulk land clearing with our mills. Most of the mills are actually planting more trees than they cut down each year for future growth plans.
Sure, you can buy a lot of different pine shavings from a lot of different companies. But are you sure that they are trying to keep the environment intact for the next generation?
