The Phase II report extends the geographic coverage from the Pacific Northwest and Southeast supply regions to Northeast-Northcental (NE-NC), both hardwoods and softwoods, and Inland Northwest (INW) softwoods. It extends the product coverage from softwood lumber, plywood, oriented strandboard, glulam beams and laminated veneer lumber to include hardwood lumber and flooring, medium density fiberboard, particleboard and resins.
The new findings from the Phase II report have been peer reviewed and published in Wood and Fiber Science, CORRIM Special Issue: Extending the Findings on the Environmental Performance of Wood Building Materials, Volume 42, March 2010
