Environmental problem has appears as an important social issue now a day. Hence, there are many researchers conducted to search for alternative way to reduce the use of non- renewable material. Fast growing timber is widely promoted to overcome the shortage of the non-renewable source used in the construction and furniture used. This study is carried out to investigate the information on the relationship between basic density towards compressive strength, MOE and MOR of Acacia mangium to analyze and improve the quality use of timber such as the strength and physical properties in green and air-dry conditions as being used in the construction and furniture sector in Malaysia as well as to reduce the use of other non-environmental material in construction sector. Throughout the study, it could be concluded that further laboratory work to increase the strength of this timber is needed for further utilization of this timber in construction and furniture made area in future.
