The central question of this course: “why study wood?” If “why study wood” is the question, one answer would be that it is the only raw material available to us that is truly renewable in human life span terms. Wood is as important to society today as it ever was, despite the development of many man-made substitute materials, changing resource availability, and the changing needs of society. Some items on the list of wood products stay the same (lumber, plywood and veneer for building construction, furniture, shipping pallets & crates and other containers & packaging materials, railroad ties, utility poles, chemical feed stocks, etc), but the list also keeps changing to meet new needs and challenges as the resource changes.

WOOD SCIENCE: BEYOND BUILDING의 최상위 리뷰
Very useful to understand about the American wood industry. Also helps know about some general information about wooden materials and wood itself.
Fun and interesting course for anyone who deals with lumber or wood products. it really piqued my interest in the wood industry and makes me want to learn more. Thanks.
Needs to fix a few broken links but was great overall. I learned a ton and have new materials to go to when I need further help on this subject.
It is a very useful topic to everyone. It explains about the how human damage environment. And how we regulate the wastages of wood
