Peak Lumber

In order to understand the concept of Peak Oil a bit better, I have been looking at past resources that were subject to the Boom or Bust cycles, such as trees and lumber. As most of us know, forests covered North America for vast stretches when Europeans first settled, and now those first-growth forests are only a memory.

More later on the uses of trees, and how the great forests disappeared, and what happened when they did.
