The American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) announced the availability of “innovative, interactive tools designed to put architects and designers in the drivers’ seat when it comes to specifying American hardwood.” You’ll find the following at www.americanhardwood.org.
- The Environmental Profiler is an interactive forest map that “shows the distribution, growth and removal of American hardwood species from the whole of the United States down to individual counties. This technology presents accurate information in fantastic detail, and visually demonstrates the true sustainability of American hardwoods.”
- The American Hardwood Guide is an “easy-to-use, illustrated species guide offering information on the appearance, machining properties, main uses, sustainability and availability of more than 20 American hardwood species. Users can select two species for a helpful, detailed, side-by-side comparison.”
- A trove of Case Studies illustrates “the structural potential of American hardwoods from projects across the world. Users can discover the latest and most innovative examples of American hardwood use, from large-scale architectural structures to fine furniture and joinery.”
