Description: Utilization standards and measurement systems have changed since the first lumber recovery study was conducted on sugar pine in 1957. These changes prompted a new study to provide new information on lumber volume and value recovery and a comparison to older studies. Lumber volume and value recovery are presented for the recent study on a board- and cubic-foot bases. Comparison to older studies showed that both volume and value increased over time because of improvements in technology, quality control methods, drying techniques; increased premiums for high grade clear material; and scarcity of the high-grade resource.

Keywords: Sugar pine, Pinus lambertiana, lumber, California, board feet, cubic feet
