Timber is the name given to wood that has been prepared for the purpose of building or carpentry. Preparation includes the drying and sometimes treatment of this wood.Kiln dried timber is a standard in the timber industry because dried timber is generally prepared for manufacture into a finished product. As most valuable timber is used within a enclosed environment-such as a home or place of business – the timber must be suitably dried to prevent movement in service.
