Studies of the amount of wood used in various types of consumption are fundamental to much long range forest planning and to a clear picture of changing demands for forest products. Wood use was examined in 3,603 new residential buildings erected in California during 1946. Using methods which appear to have application to other areas and other classes of wood consumption, estimates were made of the average volume of lumber required per dwelling unit, and of the effects of kind of dwelling, type of construction, dwelling size, deign, and trends in consumption on such use.
