Log materialAfter harvesting, the logs are sent to the processing factory to cut the branches off initial, only the main trunks are retained. The trunks are stacked outdoors or indoors with good air circulation firstly, then placed in a manual drying room to reduce the moisture. Dry-treated wood is not easily deformed during processing.
Heat treatment (HT)At present, the export of processed wood in accordance with international regulations must be subject to quarantine treatment. According to the documents promulgated by IPPC, the wood is placed in a special heat treatment room by means of high temperature heating, and the temperature is heated to above 56 degrees for 30 minutes. This eliminates the pests and diseases that may be hidden in the wood, and the whole process can be completed in about 2 hours.
The logs are processed into wooden products processed by painting or dyeing which are classified in furniture. These wooden products are non-quarantine items in Taiwan, and the export of wooden finished products does not require quarantine smoke treatment or heat treatment.
