Round timber

Roundwood is any timber product supplied in log form; more commonly known as poles, piles, girders and posts. Roundwood is mainly used for structural applications and its main benefit is that it requires very little processing and that it also retains its density and strength, unlike sawn timber.

Common applications for roundwood include bridge girders, utility service poles, building poles and retaining walls.

Roundwood is both practical and simple to use, and apart from the removal of limbs, the only processing is likely to be preservative treatment and possibly the removal of sapwood.
