Sharing Knowledge, Fueling Innovation

Think Wood values and endorses research that pushes boundaries and helps shift perceptions about building with wood. From stress test results and material comparisons to product advancements and the latest innovations, you’ll find everything you need to choose wood with confidence.

We are continually updating our library of research to provide the latest information on mass timber building products. If you can’t find a particular document or have new research to share, please let us know at info@ThinkWood.com.

If you’re working on a wood building project, free technical assistance is available from WoodWorks-Wood Products Council. Contact your local representative at help@woodworks.org.
