Abstract: The study has three main objectives: 1. Develop statistical models to project numbers of residential and nonresidential units constructed under the four socioeconomic scenarios 2. Estimate demand for wood in new buildings based on assumptions and modeling about building height and floor space, market characteristics, and relative market constraints 3. Evaluate effects of increased mass timber use on forest products markets and forest sector carbon.
