TIMBER: TheLaw.com Law Dictionary & Black's Law Dictionary 2nd Ed.:

Wood felled for building or other such like use. In a legal sense it generally means (in England) oak, ash, and elm, but in some parts of England, and generally in America, it is used in a wider sense, which is recognized by the law. The term “timber,” as used in commerce, refers generally only to large sticks of wood, squared or capable of being squared for building houses or vessels; and certain trees only having been formerly used for such purposes, namely, the oak, the ash, and the elm, they alone were recognized as timber trees.... (March 25, 2018).

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
