DescriptionThis report summarizes the results of lumber recovery studies at four sawmills in western Oregon and western Washington; two dimension mills, one grade mill, and one timber mill were included. Results from individual mills are reported and discussed. The four mills were also combined to approximate "average" conversion of logs to lumber for the region. Recovery information is presented by diameter and log grade for lumber volume, lumber grade, and lumber and log value.
