    Description

    The value per M bf (thousand board feet) of the lumber sawed from Grade-3 logs, 8 to 11 inches in diameter, from thinnings was compared with that from a harvest of mature-stand cut. The species tested were red oak (Quercus rubra L.), yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.), and hard maple (Acer saccharum Marsh). The total lumber value for each species was greater for logs obtained from thinnings. The value per M bf of the lumber sawed from red oak and yellow-poplar logs from thinnings was significantly higher than that from mature stands.
