When sawn, a log yields round timber, ties, or lumber of varying quality. Lumber that can be bought or sold in the normal channels of commerce can be considered commercial lumber. Round timbers and ties represent some of the most efficient uses of our forest resources. They require a minimum of processing between harvesting the tree and marketing the structural commodity. This course is intended to provide the student with an understanding of the different types of species and characteristics of hardwoods, softwoods, and round timbers and ties.
