Pagination or Media Count:
Lumber recovery in sawmilling is determined by a confusing interaction of several variables. Since no two sawmills are alike, the variables that influence lumber recovery are seldom the same from one sawmill to another. This complexity confuses even those with a wide range of knowledge and experience in sawmilling. Knowing the variables that affect lumber recovery in general can unravel the factors present in a specific mill. The purpose of this report is to identify and show how these factors operate in determining lumber recovery. The focus is on how these factors affect volume recovery. Since value recovery is often affected somewhat differently by these factors, the emphasis on volume should be noted and the points made here not taken out of context. Author
