3  Comes from any type of tree  Because some trees are rarer than others this means that different timber types cost more  Pine trees are the most common timber type Different types of timber floors

4  Pine is the most common wood type because the tree is:  Quick to grow  Doesn’t need much space  Easy to cut  And easy to cure Pine tree plantation

5  After a tree is chopped down, it is sent to a mill and cut into timber  From there it is preserved.  To be preserved it is treated with chemicals that go into the fibres of the wood.

6  Anything that is made of woo is a product of timber.  This includes:  Paper  Furniture  Wooden floors  Housing equipment  Rafts and boats

7  Out of most, if not all products, wood is the most sustainable and natural material on the market today  it also does not hurt the environment as much as the other products

8  If the wood that you are using is not framed than it is likely that it has caused deforestation somewhere.  Deforestation causes animals to flee from their natural homes and is not ethically good

9  When trees are growing they absorb greenhouse gases  Trees are natural so after they have been used they can be recycled of will decompose faster

10  If deforestation was used in the obtaining of the wood then it has caused major problems to wildlife somewhere in the world  The burning of wood releases greenhouse gases  The processed used to cure timber may involve dangerous chemicals

11  If timber is farmed correctly and in the right environment then it is totally sustainable  Wood is the only totally sustainable building material in the world

12  If wood is not farmed properly it causes many issues for the environment  This includes loss of habitat for animals and loss of natural forests.

13  New technologies in the breeding growing and harvesting of wood.  These have resulted in massive increases in the amount of sustainable timber farms across the world

14  Australian scientists have discovered a new way to cure wood.  The use of microwaves to open up the fibres in the timber have resulted in less waste of chemical, using fewer chemicals to cure and a cheaper way to create cured timber.

15  Australian scientist are also trying out a new automated bending machine.  It uses microwaves as well to loosen the fibres in the wood making them easier to bend  This has resulted in faster making of timber products and also a cheaper alternative to make it
