WOOD PRODUCTS IN THE USA 1TreeSign.jpg (14912 bytes)

THINGS THAT CONTAIN WOOD OR WOOD PRODUCTS
Adapted from the Temperate Forest Foundation Website
About 425 items

 

It's amazing how many things contain wood or derivatives from wood.  Most of the items are things we don't think about very much.  And, many of them are items we would not want to do without.   Wood is an amazing natural resource.  When broken down into various chemicals, dyes, compounds, and extracts, the properties of those components can be combined with a wide range of other materials for composite materials most of us could not imagine. 

Several sources suggest that the number of products made from wood or that contain wood number in the thousands.  The Temperate Forest Foundation claims over 5000.  The following list has been derived from the Temperate Forest Foundation website.  For a list of products made in Michigan, click here.
