North American Woods

These articles feature woods or other materials that are native to, or which are primarily manufactured in, the continent of North America. Granted that the nations of Central America are geographically North American, due to the more tropical nature of the region, these articles include on those materials and woods that originate in Canada, the United States, and the northern temperate state of Mexico. Woods native to the Caribbean Islands are not frequently encountered in commercial sources at this time due to overharvesting in the past and as such these islands have not been geographically classified for the purposes of this site.
