Abstract: The 21st International Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation of Wood Symposium was hosted by the Forest Research Institute Baden-Württemberg (FVA) in Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, September 24–27, 2019. This symposium was a forum for those involved in nondestructive testing and evaluation (NDT/NDE) of wood and brought together many international researchers, NDT/NDE users, suppliers, representatives from various government agencies, and other groups to share research results, products, and technology for evaluating a wide range of wood products, including standing trees, logs, structural lumber, engineered wood products, and wood structures. Networking among participants encouraged international collaborative efforts and fostered the implementation of NDT/NDE technologies around the world. The technical content of the 21st symposium is captured in these proceedings. Full-length, in-depth technical papers for the oral presentations and several of the poster presentations are published herein. The papers were not peer reviewed and are reproduced here as they were submitted by the authors.
