Description: In April 1956 a study was made in western Washington to determine grades of lumber that could be expected from silver fir (Abies amabilis) and grand fir (Abies grandis) which are grouped together the lumber industry and sold as white fir. At the sawmill where the study was made, none of the lumber is seasoned and most of it is sold surfaced-green. The headrig at this mill is used primarily to produce side-cut lumber and for breaking the remainder of the log into large cants which are sent to the sash gang. Most of the lumber produced is two inches thick.
