About Us

Cambium Carbon, a circular economy innovator, tackles key environmental challenges in supply chains. Utilizing our Traece® technology, we salvage fallen lumber and transform it into Carbon Smart Wood™, a carbon negative building material. Our partnerships with cities enable us to salvage urban trees from landfills, repurpose them, and reinvest in local tree planting efforts. This approach not only supports environmental sustainability but also stimulates job creation and strengthens local economies, underscoring our commitment to combating climate change.
