Wood delivers a connection to nature in our built environment; its environmental, biophilic, and health benefits can offer market differentiators that boost a project’s overall value.
Think Wood’s primary funder is the Softwood Lumber Board. The Softwood Lumber Board is a check-off program and was established to promote the benefits and uses of softwood lumber products in outdoor, residential and non-residential construction. Programs and initiatives supported by the SLB focus on increasing the demand for softwood lumber products in the United States.
WoodWorks-Wood Products Council provides free one-on-one project assistance, as well as education and resources related to the code-compliant design, engineering, and construction of non-residential and multi-family wood buildings.
American Wood Council develops standards and technology for wood products to assure their safe and efficient design, and provides information on wood design, green building, and environmental regulations. Learn about the Construction Fire Safety Coalition.
