About Think Wood

The whole wood world of Think Wood.

Advances in wood construction reimagine the future of the built environment, combining strength with sustainability.

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.

What does Think Wood do?

Think Wood is a communications campaign that provides commercial, multifamily and single-family home design and build resources to architects, developers, and contractors.


Think Wood’s primary funder is the Softwood Lumber Board. SLB 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.
