    Description

    Log-sort yards provide better utilization and marketing with improved value recovery of currently available timber resources in North America. Log-sort yards provide many services in marketing wood and fiber by concentrating, merchandising, manufacturing, sorting, and adding value to logs. Such operations supply forest products firms with desired raw materials, which helps improve a company’s bottomline by reducing the number of marginal logs processed. Successful log-sort yards are self- sufficient and have a good business plan, well-established markets, and a steady supply of wood. Concepts and analysis have broad application to effective marketing of a full range of multiple log products. The authors are preparing a guidebook for developing and operating successful log-sort yard operations.
