The International Wood Products Association published the 2014 edition of “International Wood: The Guide to Applications, Sources and Trends,” featuring stories of why project materials are selected.

“Readers of this year's International Wood can expect to see impressive projects and a wide range of species currently being used by architects and designers in innovative ways,” IWPA executive director Cindy Squires said in a statement. “This edition highlights how companies can get ahead of the green curve by preserving biodiversity through lesser known species. Similar in physical properties as traditional higher demand woods, these under-utilized woods are also affordable because of their abundance-good for business and good for forests.”

The 11th edition also covers a broad spectrum of imported veneer, plywood and lumber used in the U.S. market.
