Utilization of wood and wood products


Although the major industry utilizing wood is probably construction, this versatile material has been used for a multitude of purposes, both structural and decorative. These include buildings, bridges, boats, fences, cooperage, containers, pallets, domestic ware, sports equipment, furniture, toys, musical instruments, carved ornaments, and use in vehicles.

This section includes resources concerned with increasing the use of wood and wood products, competitiveness with other materials, re-using (recycling) wood, as well as some lesser-known uses, such as products made from coppice.
