On a typical tree, only the core wood is suitable for a railroad tie. One mature tree only produces 2-3 wood railroad ties; which means 1,300 trees are cut down to supply every mile of railroad track.
Made of Recycled Materials
The material used to manufacture the rubber railroad tie is recycled crumb rubber made by shredding end-of-life used tires. These tires would typically be discarded in landfills.
One of the biggest advantages of the all-rubber railroad tie is that it is the only alternative to wood tie that can be installed without any additional equipment or personnel training other than needed for wood ties.
