Title: Relationship between diameter and gross product value for small trees. In: Wood technology clinic and show.

Description: Managing forests for nontimber objectives such as habitat for threatened or endangered species, water quality, recreational opportunities, aesthetic features, and other outputs need not preclude production of wood products. In fact, removal of some trees is often necessary to accomplish these nontimber objectives. The trees selected fro removal are, however, typically smaller (6-10 inches at breast height), than have historically been offered for sale by public landowners in the western United States. This paper reports work at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station that is intended to help people who design these timber sales to understanding the relation between tree size and wood-product value. Actual recovery data collected by the Forest Service are used to illustrate the influence of log size on gross product value recovered at sawmills, veneer mills, and chip mills.
