    Description

    Not every saw log is straight and cylindrical in shape. In fact, logs are commonly out-of-round, tapered, or crooked, and often a combination of these shapes. Sawmill operators employ every means to recover as much yield as possible from each log. Yield recovery can be the difference between a profitable and a nonprofitable log. There are opportunities for improving yield in out-of-shape hardwood saw logs while still maintaining lumber quality.
