Top radical is 'wood' (木). Bottom radical is 'furthermore' (且), originally a pictograph of a cairn of stones, meaning 'build up'. Thus this character originally meant 'build up with wood'. 'Investigate' is a borrowed meaning. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Furthermore, wood should be investigated.'
