DescriptionSix studies were used to compare differences in recovery of volume and value among live, recent dead, and older dead lodgepole pine (Pinus contorts Dougl. ex Loud.) in the Western United States. The products studied included boards, random-length dimension, studs, and veneer. For the average size log (12 cubic feet) absolute values were highest for boards, followed by dimension, veneer, and studs for both live and dead timber. The percentage change in value from live to dead, however, showed the reverse order; studs lost the least value and boards the most.
