How Wood is Processed

Boards are made by cutting logs from tree trunks into long, thin, and flat pieces that are often called lumber.

Boards are used to make hundreds of things from the walls, floors, ceilings, and roofs in our houses, to the furniture and cabinets we use everyday and baseball bats, golf clubs, pianos, clarinets, guitars, hammer handles, jewelry boxes, pencils, and lots of other things.

Boards are also used to make pallets. Pallets are used to ship boxes that contain the food we eat, clothes we wear, our school and office supplies, toilet paper, napkins, papertowels - the list goes on and on!

Let's go to the sawmill, and see in more detail how boards are made from trees!

Oh Boy! A field trip!
