    Description

    Until now, information about the characteristics of sawlogs delivered to Appalachian sawmills has been generally unavailable. We know what the standing timber is like, from forest-survey data. But this paper covers a different spectrum: the frequency distributions-by size, grade, volume, and species group-of factory-grade logs actually harvested and delivered to the mills. These data were compiled from records of thousands of logs measured during studies of logging and milling economics at 15 Appalachian sawmills.
