structural timber and timber surveyors
Explanation:
This is what I would put.

You might like to consider "expert witness consultants" if the legal aspect seems important in the context of the CV, otherwise I would stick with the more general "surveyor"

The first link below seems to be broken but Google page gives:
Benfield ATT specialist surveys include Structural Timber Surveys ...
Home / Advisory / Specialist Consultancy / Timber Surveying /. Structural Timber Surveys - Strength Assessments - Species Identification ...
