DescriptionChips from Alaska hemlock and spruce trees blown down more than 10 years produced usable grades of viscose pulp. Yields of pulp from both species were about 2 percent lower for blowdown material than for control trees. Ash content was slightly higher in the pulp manufactured from blowdown timber than in pulp from control trees.
