A timber expert witness has expertise in wood that has been harvested from trees with the specific purpose of being used for construction and carpentry. Since timber has so many uses and is a very common material in various types of building projects, timber expert witnesses are often highly skilled in several facets of the engineering and construction field, each of which may be highly relevant in the event of a lawsuit, whether it concerns the forestry, building, or business and economics of the discipline.
Timber expert witness may have experience in various stages of the field, as many steps are made in acquisition and utilization of timber. Such areas include forest management, forest policy, and land management, since the rules and regulations of the discipline are very important in relation to the business-oriented aspects of the timber industry. Timber is a prominent building material commonly used in various structures, thus, the economic impact must be evaluated and how it relates to corresponding statistics and economic value. Tree appraisal is therefore very important in forecasting the economic effects of timber and its method of manufacture.
Timber expert witnesses may also have backgrounds in structural and building engineering with civil, residential, business, and/or commercial projects. The environmental concerns involved with forestry may also be highly relevant throughout the proceedings of a timber-related lawsuit, as well as construction management, engineering research, and structural design.
