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.

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
Short, sweet, simple, and concise while at the same time presenting a decent summary of key factors affecting wood use and harvest as it pertains to construction.
Few words are not just enough to say if you love the nature and environment for this course, it is a really very informative course. Thanks for the course
