Timber and lumber are basically wood and they mean the same thing.

Timber/lumber is wood used as building material, or a tree considered as a source of wood instead of as a plant. It can also mean a beam or a person who is a timber, thought the person meaning I've not heard of much.

Answer

Timber is usually the wood as it grows or is felled. Lumber is the wood after it is milled and ready for use.
