Abstract Wood is a renewable resource and plays an important role in the world economy; however, it is subject to attack from wood-degrading fungi and insects. Developing effective and low environmental impact technologies for wood protection is imperative. Using natural extractives from plants or microorganisms is an alternative to using synthetic or inorganic chemicals as wood preservatives for wood protection. Extensive research on various plant and microorganism extracts has been conducted in this area worldwide. This article reviews several research projects that explored the utilization of extracts derived from plants or fungi for biological treatment to protect wood or wood products from biodegradation during manufacturing, storage, transportation, and when in service.
