    Description

    Hardwood logging residue was examined as a source of raw material in the manufacture of sawn, split, and round timbers for use in underground coal mines. Forty-four percent of the total logging residue (residue !U 4 inches in diameter outside bark (dob), small end, and 4 feet long) from sawlog-only harvests was suitable for mine-timber production. Only 26 percent of the limbwood residue was suitable for mine timbers, but 58 percent of the bolewood residue was suitable. Depending on the species, the suitability for bolewood ranged from less than 40 percent (beech and basswood) to 68 percent (cucumbertree).
