  • Timber / Lumber / Wood Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Difference between Wood, Lumber and Timber?

Wood cut down for Human needs is called Lumber in American English and Timber in British English. 

How is Wood Measured?

Wood is measured in Weight and more commonly in Volume.The units of volume are calculated in Cubic meters, Cubic Feet, Cubic Inches, Board Feet, Thousand Board Feet, Cord, Cord Feet, Cunit, Pallet, Cross Tie and Switch Tie. The choice depends upon the intended use of lumber and length of wood logs. Volume of wood decreases as it dries and depending upon the type of wood, sometimes it can decrease by 30 percent. 

When is it suitable to measure Wood in weight rather than volume?

For less valuable wood and mostly wood that is carried in big trucks, since the job of calculating volume can be labor intensive, it is feasible to measure the entire truck on a scale and subtract the weight of an empty truck from the total. The weight of lumber can then be either converted to volume or can be negotiated between buyer and seller in weight.
