DescriptionFertilization, close spacing, very early thinning, and application of new harvesting and manufacturing technology could yield- over a 35-year rotation - 146 tons per acre (ovendry basis) of pulp, 2-by-4 studs, random-length conventional lumber, millwork and structural laminated wood, long-wide structural lumber laminated from veneer, sheathing plywood, structural flakeboard, and animal food supplement (muka). At $200 per product ton (ovendry basis, 1979 dollars), each acre could yield a gross realization of about $29,200 of these products per 35-year rotation; additionally, about 47 tons (ovendry basis) of fuel would be harvested over the 35-year rotation.
