Lumber is used in relatively anything and everything we do or use. When it comes to homes, buildings, and even some of the products we use, it involves lumber. While many can just go down to their local hardware store and pick up wood planks they need for whatever project, a lot of work has gone in to making those beams and boards, what they are so that they can be used for whatever project you have in mind. For example, saw yards have a special set up in which they are able to take the tree’s that are cut down and gathered and through a specially guided system involving water, they’re capable of guiding the tree’s down to the water and then to a saw mill where they will be prepared.

Preparation of tree’s is a bit of a tedious task and involves removal of limbs, bark, and has to be checked to make sure there are no knots, or anything fungus or bacterial related growing on them as that can cause harm to the wood and destroy a foundation that it’s being used to build. The trees are sanded down, treated, and then eventually cut down in to various sizes of planks and beams depending on who has contracted the order of whatever they need. While some may take long square shapes so they can be used as a support foundation, others will be shaped in to a plank that can be used for things such as fences, walls, doors and more.

Workers aren’t allowed to take trees from anywhere they find, as there are special rules and regulations that have to be followed. For example, a worker can’t go on private land without the owner’s permission and start cutting down land which means no trespassing on private property. Some areas are also protected by the fishing and game commissioner as they are an important part to animal habitats which can have a huge impact if destroyed or altered. Trees have to be inspected, the site in which they are taken has to be approved and then they go through the rigorous process of being made usable for commercial use. For this reason there are also truckers who are assigned the task of taking trees that were cut down from an approved location and then hauling them to other locations.

Much like the other workers, these truckers are also fitted to a special set of laws and regulations that means they have to have proper licenses, caution signs to alert other drivers on the road of the potential hazards associated with a trucker carrying a large load of trees, as well as making sure they don’t go over state regulated weight limits on these trucks that make them stop in at weigh in stations. The proper equipment has to be used to secure the trees to the truck that will be responsible for hauling them, and the truckers are also responsible for a deadline to arrive on time.
