DescriptionThis report summarizes the results of veneer recovery studies at a plywood plant in Oregon and one in Washington. Both mills peeled and clipped to maximize volume and veneer grade recovery, but because they had different objectives and techniques, both volume and grade recovery differed between the two mills. Results for veneer blocks and for woods-length logs are reported for individual mills and compared. Recovery information is presented by log grade and diameter for veneer volume, veneer grade, veneer value, and log value. Combined veneer recovery from the two mills is compared to recovery from sawmills and to the combined recovery from veneer studies conducted in the late 1960s.
