Wood Identification of Malaysian Timbers Using Macroscopic Features  
   
The identification of timbers may be carried out simply by just looking at their colours, appearance and some specific features on the timber. However, this method has its limitation as most timbers may eventually look alike (especially tropical timbers) after having been exposed to the weather for some times. Therefore, the identification of timber should be based on the examination of features that are known to be reliable, rather than on the features mentioned above. A wood identification portal that provides some key features or spot characters of 54 common timbers in Malaysia is available.
