The Truth About Ecology and Timber/Log Homes
More than 90% of all houses in the US are built with wood-framed roofs and walls.

This covers wood products, from sheathing, paneling, and trim to floorings and structural beams. Home constructions, renovations, remodeling, and home enhancements have the biggest consumption of wood products, like timber and lumber. This is around two-thirds of the entire wood-product use in the United States.
