The goal of this study was to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in compliance with the ISO 14040/44 standards for U.S. hardwood lumber products. 

The LCA was completed to: (1) better understand the environmental performance of US hardwood lumber products on a “cradle-to-gate” basis, including transportation to representative international destinations; (2) identify areas with high potential for improvement of environmental sustainability performance; and (3) respond to customer and public requests for environmental information.
