Wood is a common material used in a variety of products and structures. There are many types of cases that involve defects in wooden materials, environmental issues, and pest infestations, among other possible issues. Wood experts are used in a variety of cases, such as woodworking and manufacturing, as well as trees failure, agriculture, and irrigation.
Woodworking plants may be subject to an unforeseen accident involving machinery and/or employee safety. Wood science related to combustion and flammability is a major factor in preventing accidents from occurring in such settings, as wood is a highly flammable material. Other safety concerns must be addressed by adhering to codes and compliance regarding the material and industrial nature of the field, including construction safety.
Wood experts have knowledge of wood in an environmental context, as wood is extracted from forested areas. A lawsuit may focus on the environmental repercussions of deforestation and how the process is affecting the surrounding environment. Acquiring wood for manufacturing purposes should also be conducted under strict safety-related guidelines, as well as in a way that does not damage the material for manufacturing purposes.
Because wood is often used in building material for houses and apartment complexes, the material is susceptible to infestations from termites and other types of pests. Knowledge of how such insects may affect the wood in relation to building safety can be a very important aspect of a pest-related case.
