DIMENSION YIELDS FROM BLACK WALNUT LUMBER By DAVID R. SCHUMANN, Forest Products Technologist FOREST PRODUCTS LABORATORY,1 FOREST SERVICE, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE INTRODUCTION American black walnut Juglans nigra(L.) has consistently been one of the most popular species used in the manufacture of furniture, . Predicting lumber volume and grade recovery for Scots pine stems using tree models and sawmill conversion simulation. Through application of tree models, stem shape and internal knot structure of Scots pine stems could be predicted using site, stand, and tree variables. Stem shape was described by stem taper and cross-sectional eccentricity. Logs less than the “standard length of log” should use the next lower length (e.g., a ft. log will be considered as a 8 ft. log). • Standing Trees: Estimate the height of the trunk from the base to the first major limb, curve in the trunk, or the point (ocular estimate) where the diameter is File Size: KB. A large, top quality black cherry, for example, would command a significant price premium as a veneer log, while limby and crooked sweetgum might be priced as pulpwood. Third, the value of timber depends heavily on how much timber is sold in one timber sale and what kind of harvesting is .

Overall, 80% of the logs in the sample (n = ) were grade sawn, with the following breakdown by species: black cherry – 81%, sugar maple – 77%, and red oak – 82%. Twenty-six percent of the lumber recovered was sawn from the core center, 35% was from the outer quality zone, and 38% was from the inner quality zone. The amount of lumber is measured in board feet, where one board foot is 1” x 12” x 12”, or any dimension with the same volume of wood. For example, a board 2” x 6” x 8’ contains 8 board feet. There are different log rules that are used for scaling in different regions and for different products. International ¼” Size: 1MB. The Tree: Prunus Serotina Family Black cherry stands alone for its commercial value as a lumber wood. Other cherry trees most often function as decorative trees or fruit bearers. Black cherry is characterized by late maturing fruit and is distinct from the other cherries because it has dark bark with irregular scales that peel off easily and a.
