Introduction

Any tree that can be a potential timber is called standing timber. The world of forest consists of different species, mainly of two categories: softwood and hardwood which are spread all over the world. Some of the major species of wood are processed and used for timber and wood business.


Some of the species have different local names in different countries and differ from one geographical area to area, e.g. some of the characteristics of the same specie grown in Indonesia and Burma will differ. Such species can be referred to as the sibling species of the main species.
