DescriptionLumber recovery information from live and beetle-killed ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws) in the Colorado Front Range is presented. No significant difference in lumber volume was found among the samples. Significant differences were found in lumber value among the live, 1-year-dead, and 3- to 5-year-dead samples. About 10 percent of the value was lost in the first year after death, primarily because of blue stain. Checks and splits, wood borers, and rot caused additional loss in subsequent years.
