Engineered wood

A range of derivative wood products made from fibers, chips, strands, or veneers bonded with adhesives to form composite materials. Engineered wood products include structural members such as I-beams, floor and ceiling joists, framing studs, and sheet products such as fiberboard or particle-board. Engineered wood products use smaller, younger trees and parts of the tree that were not previously used to reach the same or better structural characteristics of solid dimensional lumber. This makes better use of the resource and avoids the use of larger, older trees. The use of engineered wood products also eliminates the waste associated with warped, twisted, or otherwise unusable lumber.
