Description: The available supply of yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.), its potential for new uses, and its continuing importance to the furniture industry have created a need to accumulate additional information about this species. As an aid to better utilization of this species, charts for determining cutting stock yields from yellow poplar lumber are presented for each of the five top grades. Adjustment charts present the changes for specified width cuttings, also by grade. Yield and cost comparisons are made for various grades and grade mixes, with a case study used for illustration. The data should aid manufacturers by making possible comparison of study yields with actual mill yields, comparison of various grade yields with one another, and the evaluation of grade mixes for most efficient production of cutting bill.
