Credit Weight: 0.5 Prerequisite(s): Natural Resources Management 3178 Description: A more in-depth knowledge in wood structure and morphology. Variability within and between species, growth defects and the impact of silvicultural treatments on wood quality are studied through lab exercises consisting of physical and mechanical property testing using standard procedures for physical tests and using a Universal Wood Testing Machine to study the mechanical properties of different timbers and engineered products. Also students will be involved in projects aimed to display different aspects of the forest products industry. A term paper reporting all the activities during the course is required. Offering: 0-0; 2-3
