Black bark ponderosa pine: tree grade definition and value comparison with old-growth trees

, : Black bark ponderosa pine: tree grade definition and value comparison with old-growth trees. Western Journal of Applied Forestry 9(1): 8-13

A ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) tree grade has been developed to separate lower value, small-diameter trees typical of young-growth stands from small-diameter old-growth trees. The tree grade uses a combination of bark, limb, and crown characteristics to identify the young, 'black bark' trees. The tree grade was tested in two shop type mills and one dimension mill in southern Oregon and eastern Washington.
