Lumber Supply and Housing Affordability

With a level playing field, the U.S. lumber industry is able to expand production. From 2016 to 2021, U.S. lumber shipments appear to be on track to have increased by 17.5 billion board feet. These increases have more than offset any decline in unfairly traded Canadian imports. U.S. companies continue to invest in expanding their production capabilities to mill lumber from American trees by American workers to build American homes.
