Sawn timber is usually artificially dried at least to a level acceptable for shipping. In that case, at least 97% of the pieces in a batch of sawn timber has a moisture content of no more than 24%. Moisture content requirements that deviate from this must be specially mentioned in the contract/order confirmation. By agreement, sawn timber can be dried to levels of moisture content required for different purposes.
