1887 Minutes of the Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers  
W n m the use of timber for docks and marine works, except for temporary structures, is almost obsolete in Great Britain, it still maintains an important place in the Colonies of Australia, where it is largely employed for engineering works. This is mainly due to the excellence of many of the native hard woods as regards strength and durability, and to the small cost of timber compared to that of masonry, or even concrete.
