Research on Producing Green Dimension Directly From Hardwood Logs

Abstract

Because of rising timber costs and an increasing demand for high-grade timber, suppliers of solid wood products need additional material options. We feel that European and Japanese processing concepts of producing green dimension and other clear material directly from logs could provide an answer. In this paper we present a brief overview of our research results on producing green dimension from logs. We include yield results, mill designs, and a look at the economics.
