I am glad that I took this informative course. This course is useful to each and every people irrespective of their academic background and interests. It is good course regarding wood and its uses.
As a Civil Engineering student, this course has been very helpful for me. I do recommend to have this course in order to get the basic concept of wood science and its use as a building material.

Sir Lawrence's voice was too low sometimes and too loud when he starts a sentence. otherwise, this course is full of knowledge.

too basic. The course doesnt get the student interest in wood science because all is explained in a very superficial way. It may need to get deep in technical aspects of this study field and how it is related with physics, chemestry and ingeneering carreers (but in a more DEEPER or technical way).

At times, the course felt like it was not thought throw. It is still a good introductory course to wood science, but... I always felt that the instructors did not know exactly what to say and about what they should talk.

Too focused on American context. Wrong technical information here and there. Generally uninformative if already working in the industry, your probably know more than what this course has to offer.

I appreciate the effort but althoug some interesting topics are metnioned, I think that it only moves from random ideas insted of getting a bit deeper in the interesting points (whenever possible since it is a short course).
One important think that I must say is that I found it incredible that when talking about the solutions for solving the "problem" of running out of forests to cut (that is, more management, plantations, ...) i think you forgot the most important (applicable to any other resource): REDUCE CONSUMPTION.
