 Summary:
 Timber as the material for structural building shows the good physical and mechanical characteristics. Thanks to that fact and the number of accompanying qualitiesof timber in its modern, technologically improved form, rational projecting of high rangeand various appliance constructions is a usual practice of building today. However, it must be said that besides good, timber as material, also has bad sides. That which isusually questioned is the durability of timber in different exploatation conditions,especially in the direct exposure to bad weather conditions, dynamic loads of high frequency or intensity, fire conditions… In this paper it has been given the review of modern methods and techniques with which, thanks to special technological treatments,carefully solved constructive details, timber structures significantly improve its resistanceto different influences and loads and mechanical properties. Some of those methods have been used in practice by the author of this work himself.
