Some of the significant non-destructive testing (NDT) and non-destructive evaluation (NDE) research efforts being conducted by international forest products research community are discussed. The international NDT/NDE research community aims to organize a series of technical symposia for the exchange of technical information for researchers. The International Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation of Wood Symposia Series is aimed to provide a technical and scientific forum for researchers to present and share their latest research efforts. Published proceedings from each symposia consist the research and development efforts presented during the symposium. Researchers and industry representatives are now using this symposia as a platform to present their research work. NDE technologies can be used to evaluate the forest operational value chain and to ensure public safety by detecting defects in urban trees.
