The plank house was built by Native Americans on the west coast of  the United States. They were built by planks taken from the giant cedar trees. The Native Americans used sustainable ways to collect the planks by only removing planks from the trees, leaving the tree to grow and get bigger. After the settlers came from the east the  giant trees became scarce because they cut down the whole tree. Later the logging industry made the trees scarce.
