Be the one who branched out.

Wood can contribute to a project’s sales proposition and create warm, beautiful environments that appeal to a new generation of eco-minded employees, residents, and occupants. Some builders and developers have reported higher sales, rental, and/or lease rates for wood buildings compared to similar non-wood structures.


Preferred and pre-fabulous.

Due to its cost advantages, availability, and ease of assembly, wood is often the go-to framing choice for single family homes, multifamily, and commercial buildings⁠—Type III and Type V construction. Light-frame construction is often used for retail, healthcare, school, and commercial buildings.


Create a mass-timber-piece.

Valued for its natural beauty, strength, and versatility, wood offers endless possibilities in architecture and design. Conveying warmth and sophistication, it can be used as a load-bearing structure and an interior finish material. Mass timber construction is capturing the imaginations of leading building and design professionals, who continue to evolve and advance its potential.


Pretty, pretty wood.

Softwoods come from conifer trees, or cone-bearing trees. North American softwood species have needle-shaped foliage instead of the leaves found on hardwood trees.
