Are natural bark shingles a green material?

    Yes. They contain no chemicals, and are made from bark that would otherwise be burned or left to rot. It insulates well & requires less maintenance than other materials. However, it can be expensive.

    The manufacturer determines how sustainably bark shingles are made.  Not every manufacturer uses the same practices concerning green attributes nor do they use the same practices in general manufacturing that ensure longevity and quality.  Not all manufacturers are the same.  Highland Craftsmen Inc is the Original Poplar Bark Shingle Manufacturer and only sells Bark House brand shingles.  HC is FSC Chain of Custody Certified, B Corp Certified, and has a Gold Level Cradle to Cradle Certification for their exterior shingles.  They don’t just talk the talk, they have third party certifications that reflect the level of their commitment to sustainability.
