Timber research explored the use of timber in building construction industry as one of the most important material in construction. Timber is the only building material that properly use positively benefits the plants and our relationship to it. And this study is to assess the problems and prospects of timber as an external material in building production in hot climates climate and to determine the various problems and prospects of timber in building the external parts of the building. And also to determine the functions of timber in building production, to evaluate the quantity of wood used by the contractors as external material in building production and to achieve the natural quantity of timber as a building material i.e. aesthetes. The researcher in this study used the descriptive survey research design in order to simplify and understand the complex issue concerning the work which employed the use of questionnaire, personal interview and observation in the collection of data. It is noted that it is the poor seasoned, untreated and unpreserved timber supplied to builders in site which gives room to most defects which affects timber in building.
