Wooden foundations have been in use since ancient times. With the advent of new materials and technologies they have been almost completely driven out of building practice. The main disadvantage of such foundations is their short service life. However, there are historical examples in which wooden foundations had been used for hundreds of years. In the opinion of the author, if comply with proper rules of operation, wood can be effectively used as foundation and for foundation strengthening in modern foundation engineering.
