The Selection an Ordering of Timber

30 January 2012

Timber and it’s importance as a building material in New Zealand has been recognised for over a century and a half. This role is gaining a greater significance with the world wide recognition of timber as a renewable resource and environmentally friendly material that plays an important part in the sustainability of our day to day lives.

We publish a booklet called “Selection and Ordering of Timber” as an educational tool and source of information for people employed in the building sector. The booklet covers a wide range of topics to do with wood properties, how timber is produced and processed for use in construction, grading and treatment, branding, sizes and building standards and regulations
