The process of extracting timber from the forest is called lumbering. A great deal of preparation is necessary before actual tree –felling can go ahead. First the area has to be surveyed where the best stands of timber are located. Tracks have to be opened up to give access to the lumbermen and allow the logs to be removed.

Camps have to be set up with living quarters for the men, and facilities for servicing and maintaining the equipment. Forest concessions and felling permission also have to be sought from the government only then the actual tree felling can begin. There are two different types of lumbering processes; Tropical lumbering and temperate lumbering. The process varies due to different nature of the forests in different climatic regions and differences in local techniques and economies involved to derive the greatest benefits of lumbering.

Tropical lumbering in the tropical rain forest or the monsoon forest it is mainly for the extraction of tropical hardwood such as meranti and teak. The operation is carried out in humid jungle environment, which is difficult to penetrate. Lumbermen risk encountering wild animals, pests and deadly tropical disease.The felling of the trees is done by axes, handsaws and increasingly power saws, which are fast and very efficient.

"Lumbering" has many definitions, some of which are; slow and laborious movement of a great weight, to move heavily, clumsily, and often noisily, to heap together in disorder, or, simply, the business of obtaining timber, from the forest, for making lumber.
