Sawmilling and drying


Sawmilling is the industrial process of sawing timber into planks or boards. In most countries it is the major sector in the forest products industries. Many countries have sawmilling associations that represent the interests of their members in the sawmilling trade.

Drying is the process of removing moisture from wood to improve its serviceability. The term seasoning is often used to refer to drying in the atmosphere. Kiln drying is more common these days, especially in climates with unpredictable temperatures. It is used to accelerate the process and is conducted under controlled conditions in a drying chamber or kiln.
