Title: Methodology for locating defects within hardwood logs and determining their impact on lumber-value yield

Author: Harless, Thomas; Wagner, Francis G.; Steele, Phillip; Taylor, Fred; Yadama, Vikram; McMillin, Charles W.;

Date: 1991

Source: Forest Products Journal 41(4):25-30

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: A precise research methodology is described by which internal log-defect locations may help select hardwood log ortentation and sawing procedure to improve lumber value. Procedures for data collection, data handling, simulated sawing, and data analysis are described. A single test log verified the methodology. Results from this log showed significant differences in lumber-value yield due to circumferential log ortentation and sawing method.
