Brief History of Lumber

During the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century, lumber was exported to a fairly small degree. The main function of lumber was for heating, constuction of ships and homes. In the ninteenth century lumber was used by Indians for shelter, trasporation and tools. Britain needed an excessive amount of oak and pine for ship construction during their war with France. As a result many Canadians found jobs shipping lumber to Britain. In the mid nineteenth centuary beams were produced from lumber to construct cities. As time progressed the demand for lumber decreased due to new construction materials such as bricks, iron and steel. When products like paper and pulp became popular, lumber became in demand again. Lumber continues to be one of Canada's biggest exports and play's a key role in the overall economy
