Podcast: Is Lumber the Best Building Product for the Environment?

Material Costs

On the latest episode of the NAHB podcast Housing Developments, NAHB CEO Jerry Howard and SVP of Communications & Public Affairs Paul Lopez welcome Jackson Morill, CEO of the American Wood Council, to discuss how building material choices can impact the environment and how wood might have an answer to climate change concerns. In the face of an ongoing lumber supply and price crisis, this unique message comes at a critical time as NAHB continues to press for lasting solutions regarding supply and trade with Canada, and the nation grapples with growing concerns about the changing environment.

Tune in to hear another perspective on the lumber issue and to learn more about the value and future of wood as a building material.
