Learn with TRADA Live: Fundamentals of timber provides a comprehensive overview of the many aspects of timber and is intended as an introductory resource for newcomers to the material and those looking to construct a strong foundational layer of knowledge upon which to build with the support of a trusted authority like TRADA.
The first session is Trees and the nature of wood with Phil O’Leary, Technical Manager, at BM TRADA.
Phil will cover the following: what a tree is and how its growth strategies affect its properties; basic cell structure; nomenclature and classification; what is in a name, e.g. softwood, hardwood, evergreen, trade name, commercial name, and local name; and timber species – common commercial and not so common.
