Title: The yield of Douglas-fir in the Pacific Northwest measured by international 1/4-inch kerf log rule.

Author: Briegleb, Philip A.;

Date: 1948

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 46, p. 1-4

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: The international log rule is little used in the Douglas-fir region today, but it is likely to find wider use here in the future. This is the opinion of a number of foresters preparing plans for the management of forest properties in the region. Advantage of the International 1/4-inch kerf log rule is that log scale by this measure approximates the volume of green lumber recovered by sawmills of average efficiency and cutting a normal mill-run of lumber sizes.
