Non Technical Summary
This research will track trends in wood use in major end uses and evaluate how specific changes such as changes in building codes or green building standards could change how wood is used in major end use categories.


Objectives Summary
Provide improved understanding about the effect of production trends and technology changes in solidwood industries and end use industries on product and wood needs.


Approach Summary
Collect information on the end use of wood in major end uses including residential, nonresidential, manufacturing and commercial uses, and evaluate the realized and potential impact of code changes and change in green building standards on wood use in nonresidental buildings.
