Processing of small diameter logs: effect of log diameter, sawing pattern and some bole variables on lumber recovery



Processing of small diameter logs: effect of log diameter, sawing pattern and some bole variables on lumber recovery



Ghana Journal of Forestry 8: 43-51



The effect of log diameter, sawing pattern, log length and log stem form on lumber yield have been studied with a view to finding the most efficient processing technique for small diameter plantation grown teak (Tectona grandis) logs in Ghana. The study has shown that there are significant differences between lumber yields from log diameter classes 10-20, 21-30 and 31-40 cm, and that larger log diameters generate higher lumber yields than smaller log diameters.
