Potential of small dimensioned, low quality round wood of scots pine for the production of valuable timber

Potential of small dimensioned, low quality round wood of scots pine for the production of valuable timber

General Technical Report Forest Products Laboratory, USDA Forest Service ( FPL-GTR-100): 59-66

The aim of this study was to select end uses for Scots pine timber produced from small-diameter roundwood with high value and to define its specific quality requirements. In general two product groups are possible: timber for furniture, floors etc. and construction timber. 120 test trees from two different growth regions from the southwest of Germany were included. The sawn products were characterized by high contents of juvenile wood near the pith.
