Description: A recently completed study of the sawmill "waste" in the Douglas fir region of Oregon and Washington shows that in the production of 1929 cute of rough green, rough-sawn lumber (10,286,554,000 board feet), 1,552,865,251 cubic feet (solid measure) of sound wood in sawlog form were used. Of this 66.61 per cent (910,010,322 cu.ft.) was converted into rough-green lumber, 19.31 per cent (261,443,660 cu.ft.) was broken down into slabs, edgings, and trimmings, and 14.08 per cent (130,611,284 cu.ft.) was reduced to sawdust. Aside from this, 167,010,205 cubic feet of bark went through the mill.
