You can use any tress that you cut down from your site IN your home. Yep, I said in your home. Heavy timber posts, beams and trusses can be made from trees on your site an used immediately.
I also am very intentional when placing your home so that we minimize site disturbance and maximize solar gain. In Conscious Architecture I focus on loving our resources in any way/shape/form that can mean.
