ASTM Wood Standards

ASTM wood standards include the terminology, standard practices, specifications, and testing methods for wood and wood products. Guidelines address issues in all stages of the wood making process, including harvesting lumber from forests, protecting lumber and timber from termites and fungus, testing fire retardant wood, and testing the water solubility of wood products. Primary purposes for these guidelines are the creation of construction materials and wooden poles, such as electricity poles. Manufacturer adherence to wood testing guidelines can ensure worker safety and quality products.
