The central question of this course: “why study wood?” If “why study wood” is the question, one answer would be that it is the only raw material available to us that is truly renewable in human life span terms. Wood is as important to society today as it ever was, despite the development of many man-made substitute materials, changing resource availability, and the changing needs of society. Some items on the list of wood products stay the same (lumber, plywood and veneer for building construction, furniture, shipping pallets & crates and other containers & packaging materials, railroad ties, utility poles, chemical feed stocks, etc), but the list also keeps changing to meet new needs and challenges as the resource changes.

As a Civil Engineering student, this course has been very helpful for me. I do recommend to have this course in order to get the basic concept of wood science and its use as a building material.
Several of the links were dead, but other than that, great information in a very easy to follow manner. I especially enjoyed the questions during the video. Those helped tremendously.
It was a great experience to learn wood, I am a civil engineer unfortunately we learn much of wood in school. Thanks to everyone who available us to learn this materials.
Short, sweet, simple, and concise while at the same time presenting a decent summary of key factors affecting wood use and harvest as it pertains to construction.
Very informative. Production value lower than what I've previously seen in other courses but it seems to work for this course, and give it an underlying charm.
Very imformative, very engaging, very inspiring!\n\nAn awesome course to be taken and the knowledge shared here is simply shocking and usefull.\n\nTHANK YOU.
Very useful to understand about the American wood industry. Also helps know about some general information about wooden materials and wood itself.
It is a very useful topic to everyone. It explains about the how human damage environment. And how we regulate the wastages of wood
I loved the course. Very informative, I shared some resource links with my mothernatureus facebook fanpage too.

A very good introduction to several topics related to forestry, wood science and wood industry.
A few of the external links are missing, the course is relaxed and well taught.
