DescriptionDiscusses processing and conditioning treatments before and aftger compression debarking of western hemlock, Douglas fir, red alder, and bigleaf maple. Bark removal and wood recovery from red alder far exceeded the other species tested. Approximately 90 percent of the wood fiber input was recovered at a residual bark content of less than 2 percent by weight.
