It's hard to think of the word "timber" without hearing the drawn-out yell of a lumberjack felling a tree. But crashing vegetation is just one step in the life of timber--from there, it can become anything from the house you live in to the paper that you take notes on. The program examines how timber is grown, harvested, processed, and recycled as well as visits a lab where scientists hope to turn timber into biofuel.
