The book presents lecture notes on Wood physics and timber mechanics. Foresters review notes in multiple choice format. Wood physics especially discusses: hygroscopicity in wood such as wood moisture content, fiber saturation point, equilibrium moisture content and maximum moisture content in wood. Dimensional changes in wood were also discussed such as: swelling and shrinking. Wood density, specific gravity, buoyancy, thermal conductivity and electrical properties of wood were given emphasis. Forester's review questionnaires on Forest Resources Ecosystem, Forest Production Management and Forest Resource Engineering and Utilization were presented in the form of question answerable by multiple choice. This book is design to forestry students and graduates who would like to review on wood physics and mechanics as well as familiarize questionnaires on forest resource ecosystem, engineering, utilization, and forest production management.
