DescriptionWalnut is a unique species in both its timber and wood characteristics. Although market conditions vary it is generally considered a valuable species. Because of these factors, setting quality (value) levels for both lumber and veneer can be involved. Lumber grades are quantitative thus straight forward once the system is understood. Determining quality in veneer is much more subjective. This paper will discuss important factors related to quality in both lumber and veneer. Landowners, foresters, researchers, and others concerned with the production of walnut timber for lumber and veneer should consider these factors before proceeding with their work.
