The term “timber," as used in commerce, re-

fers generally only to large sticks of wood. squared or capable of being squared for huil:iing 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. But the numerous uses to which wood has come to be applied, and the general employment of all kinds of trees for some valuable purpose. has wrought a change in the general acceptalion of terms in connection therewith, and we find that Webster deilnes “timher" to be “that sort of wood which is proper for buildings or for tools. utensils. furniture. carriages, fences. ships, and the like."
