Abstract : Judgements about the impact of the use environment on lumber properties are essential to efficient lumber use. Product associations, code groups, practicing engineers, and consensus groups such as ASTM use the existing data base on environmental influence to make judgements and recommendations. Setting priorities for improving this data base is the objective of this workshop. The needs of the user community should be considered as this task is carried out. (Author)
