Description: Air-drying rates for two stacks of 2-inch-thick white spruce were observed in the Fairbanks area during summer 1982. The air-drying rate for the same size lumber was also observed during winter 1982-83. Very little drying occurred during the winter. Drying rates in summer were correlated with average daily temperature and average daily dew point to derive predictive equations. A hypothetical mill production and sale schedule are used to show possible effects of kiln drying on required inventory.
Keywords: air dry lumber, white spruce, Alaska (interior), interior Alaska
