The fact that our forests are decreasing with speed, despite the increasing population, is the couse for the growing problems of the forest products industry sector. The inadequacy to standards and the fact tahat the raw material firewood more efficiently, a study related with its dimensional properties should be made. In this study, meetings were held with timber plants which are active in the forest industry sector in Turkey and of which the annual raw material firewood process capacity is 5000 m^3 and above. As there was no possibility to examine the industry from all aspects, during this meetings, it was considered to be complated with other studies. As a result of the studies and calculations made, the main problems of the plants forming the subject of the study, could be determine; solution suggestions developed and standards related with dimensional properties of the raw material firewood requested to be processed, could be developed.
