Properties and utilisation of native wood species

Key issue:
  • Physical and mechanical properties of wood and wood products (wood quality, grading)
  • Properties and potential use of less-exploited (native) wood species or grades (e.g. sweet chestnut)
  • Modified wood (e.g. thermowood, bioincising)
  • Improvement of wooden components and products (e.g. windows, facade cladding, flooring elements)
