Mass Timber Rising
Tall Wood – Low Carbon
Fuels to Frame
The Promise of Mass Timber is a publicly available resource that seeks to inform, educate, and develop a deeper understanding of mass timber construction, forests and solutions to climate change. We aim to provide an accessible resource for the architecture, engineering and construction community about many intricacies of using wood as a sustainable building material. As the mass timber industry evolves, expect that this digital magazine will evolve along with it, providing insights and analysis of the role of forests in the built environment.
