Description: This paper reports on HaLT2, an improved version of HaLT (Hardwood Lumber Traning Program)- a computer program that provides training in lumber grading. The newly added enhancements In HaLT2 will provide training for both novice and experienced hardwood lumber graders in accordance with National Hardwood Lumber Assodation (NHLA) rules. HaLT2 is more accurate, easier to use, and can be used to create boards that emphasize particular points of study. It can also be used to grade actual boards for evaluative use by industry, academia, and the NHLA. The feedback from these evaluations indicates HaLT2 to be accurate.
