DescriptionThe market for engineered wood products (EWP) is being driven by a number of factors including: technology; reduced availability of old-growth timber; construction activity, and globalization. Specifically, technological developments have allowed the industry to "engineer" or "design" improved performance properties and to utilize former "weed species"; environmental concerns have all but eliminated the availability of old-growth timber, and this has contributed to a decline in performance/serviceability of sawn lumber and plywood (Guss 2003).
