The Sustainable Future of CLT in the South
Cross-laminated timber, or CLT, is a growing industry in the southern United States, with southern pine and other softwoods abundantly found in the region. Using CLT has numerous economic and environmental benefits, thereby benefiting many sectors along the supply chain, including landowners and foresters, developers and contractors, architects and engineers.
