Introduction

Among the thousands of natural resources present in the world, wood is one of the most popular ones. It was not until the turn of the previous century that the human dependence on wood was higher than any other sources of energy. It was considered to be a one of the wonders of nature that was created to provide comfort and support to the humanly civilized way of living. Although there is no historical confirmation about the first use of wood by humans, still it dates back to a very long period of time when it was a major lifestyle resource for our ancestors from the ancient times. Wood was utilized not just as a source of heating or drawing energy, but also as a material for making tools, household furniture, sheltering objects, transporting objects, decorative purposes, culinary items and cutlery, and a large number of other items that one can only imagine. As per historians, wood was the original material used in most of the first time scientific inventions. To date, wood is a very important part of human living. Life without wood can be very difficult and expensive.
