1 Introduction Timber structures can be remarkably durable if they are properly designed, con-structed and maintained. However, wood is a naturally occurring biological mate-rial.

Figure 1 represents the typical timber product production system, from harvesting to the final products. It shows two subsystems, the forestry and timber industry, within the timber production sector. The major objective of this paper is to explore ways to reduce the environmental impacts of timber products, from sawmills to final by: 9.

associated shrinking and swelling of the wood. Less dimensional change in the wood results in less weathering. The preservative in a water-repellent preservative helps protect wood from decay, insects, molds and stains.

Timber taken from well managed forests,is the most sustainable construction material. It gives the minimum or no effects to environment when disposed as construction waste. The most attractive feature in. There are various types of defects in timber as a construction material.

These defects in timber can be due to natural forces, fungi, insects, and during seasoning and conversion. Types of these defects in wood are discussed in detail. Trees give us the timber, which is converted into the required form and finally used. Before [ ]. One challenge of the industry is the low recovery rate, leading to waste and the loss of almost 70% of the raw material base (Sutton and Kpentey, ).

The biggest sources of local demand for wood are the furniture and construction industries, which account for 75% and 24%, respectively, of the market (Sutton and Kpentey, ). Timber is a natural product and every natural product has some imperfections. Timbers are not excluded from that.

Most of the defects in timber cause weakness or others sorts of difficulties. However some defects can be beneficial for a specific type of work, for example, twisted wood is good for making a bowl out of timber.

Log length appears to be related to lumber recovery with recovery percentage decreasing as length increases (fig. 3) (Bell ). Hidden in this relationship of length to recovery is the effect of taper. Log length actually has no effect on lumber recovery. Causes of Deterioration and Defects According to Barry A Richardson, there are six factors that affect building deterioration if no remedial action takes place.

The factors are: Mechanical Agents These agents impose a physical force on a building. They maybe static and. result in slow deterioration of the wood sur-rounding the metal. Corrosion of the fastener with deterioration of the wood causes loss of strength to the joint and to the structural in-tegrity of the assembly.

General Technical Report PNW, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service. Timber Timber shall be stored in stacks on well treated and even surfaced beams, sleepers or brick pillars so as to be at least mm above the ground level.

Contact with water shall be avoided under all circumstances. Members shall be stored separately in layers according to lengths and materials of equal lengths shall be piled.

On the other hand, the recovery rate of green-off-saw (GOS) timber from logs and the speed at which the logs can be converted into lumber have a major impact over the costs of operating sawmills (Venn et al.

For a given sawmill, the GOS recovery rate is frequently assessed based on the total wood. productive potential of the land. If trees exist at the time of acquisition—as merchantable timber, young growth, or a combination of the two—a portion of the acquisition basis must be assigned to each category according to its relative fair market value (see Chapter 5, page 22).

The rate of drying after wetting is dependent on conditions such as ambient temperature, relative humidity, and wind velocity. Deterioration of stone proceeds usually at higher relative humidity, above 65%, and is frequently asso-ciated with freeze–thaw weathering.

Changes in milling infrastructure have improved lumber recovery rates across the western United States, but these changes are poorly documented and slow to be adopted in industry analyses. This article reports trends in three measures of lumber recovery for western sawmills: lumber overrun (LO), lumber recovery factor.

Growth stresses may cause defects in standing trees and felled logs, thus reduce product yield and quality. Grain deviation can reduce lumber strength and cause warping. Juvenile wood is usually associated with poor dimensional stability, and decreased strength and stiffness.

Logically, the rate of sawtimber deterioration differed across the South. Recovery in the warm, humid east Texas region had dropped to about 75 percent of the control value at 90 days after the trees were killed (Walters, Weldon, and Rutherford unpublished).

South. It has two primary objectives: (1) to measure net investment in timber production, and (2) to define an economic measure of changes in timber.rate as well as in labour productivity and capital intensity. The other enterprises in the study, because of hampered raw-material flows, excessive numbers of personnel, and low timber potential in the logging areas, scored poor rates between timber output and input of equipment and workforce.
