Description: A computer program for training both novice and experienced hardwood lumber graders in accordance with the National Hardwood Lumber Association (NHLA) rules is presented. It is anticipated that this program will help alleviate the problems of improper grading by improved and continued training and make lumber manufacturers and purchasers more knowledgeable of the rules. This additional knowledge should help to resolve disputes that can occur due to varied interpretation of the NHLA rules. The program will have practical value both in the areas of testing and training lumber graders.
