Natural wood has numerous advantages when used as a framing and building material. There are cost advantages, of course, it’s readily available, and it assembles quickly. It’s no surprise that wood is the go-to framing material for a host of construction projects like single and multi-family homes, commercial buildings, brick and joist structures and wood-framed buildings.

Wood is also much more environmentally friendly as a building and framing material than, say, steel or concrete. Unlike these materials, wood is a building material that can be grown and regrown naturally, as well as through responsible replanting and forestry management programs. Select harvesting and other sustainable practices allow growth to continue while larger trees are harvested. As these forests are re-growing, they are also naturally and efficiently removing and storing carbon dioxide from the environment.
