Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: The USDA Forest Service Standard Grades for Hardwood Factory Lumber Logs are described, and lumber grade yields for 16 species and 2 species groups are presented by log grade and log diameter. The grades enable foresters, log buyers, and log sellers to select and grade those log suitable for conversion into standard factory grade lumber. By using the apropriate lumber grade yields, log buyers and sellers can appraise the logs in terms of expected lumber grade volume and value. This report supersedes an earlier report on hardwood log grading, Forest Service Research Paper FPL 63.

Keywords: log quality, end product yields, log value
