Regardless of where a tree grows, most foreign wood species can be used in India. Wood species from B.C., Canada can easily be used in India if proper consideration is given to the mechanical properties, working properties, and durability (resistance to termites and decay).

- The treatment of the wood in terms of handling and manufacturing.
- Its intended end-use and the ideal species for that application.
