Im not sure if this post is appropriate to this newsgroup but I hope
someone can give me some insight into the importing of hardwood. I
have a source which has access to various hardwoods in another country
and wants to import them to the UK, I am trying to find buyers for
Unfortunately I know very little about the timber industry, could
someone possibly point me to a resource which may give me information
on how companies buy wood, terminology that is used, quantities etc.
any help would be appreciated,
I imported some machine parts in from China (to the US) and the USDA
impounded the shipment until it was determined that the shipment did not
contain any "solid wood". I assume they were worried about native Asian
wood-borne "bugs" being introduced into our ecosystem.
You might want to contact the Brit equivalent of the US Department of
Agriculture and see what they say. Just a thought.....
I've traveled to most parts of the world so I've checked a couple of times
on what it would take to ship some logs into the U.S. It just seemed to
much hassle unless you were going to be shipping quite a bit (i.e. the
initial hassle/log goes down as the number of logs goes up). If someone
knows of the secret handshake I'd love to hear about it as well for my next
overseas trip (anything good in India?).

Have you been to Tawau, Sabah, East Malaysia?
They use to have the finest tropical hardwoods. There is a specie call
"Changnai" (spelling?). It is very hard and resistance to rot. These
woods are use to make Chinese's traditional coffin (casket) and
I don't know where the first two places are, but I've been to Malaysia many
times. There are lots of nice hardwoods in many countries, but I haven't
found that it's easy to important any logs or boards from them.
