I took after it; but when I got to it it warn't nothing but a couple of sawlogs
made fast together.
Having more length options clearly increases value, volume, and recovery of sawlog
Based on figures provided by the NYS DEC, in 2009 NYS harvested the equivalent of 43 million bdft, which includes cordwood and chips, from their certified acreage, with approximately 20 million bdft represented in sawlog
The sawmill industry is characterized by relatively high transportation costs for raw materials, which results in a dependency on local sawlog
suppliers (Murray and Prestemon 2003).
Since most aspens tend to become infected with various fungi and rot by the time they reach sawlog
sizes and because the wood is structurally weak, the species is of little value as dimensional lumber.
The remaining upper sections of such a tree-length log or other tree-length logs with relatively small diameter at breast height (DBH) are first debarked before being cut into sawlog
sections of the length desired by the merchandizer.

Toppinen and Kuuluvainen (1997) conducted a similar study on sawlog
and pulpwood markets in Finland.
Global lumber, sawlog
and pulpwood market reporting is included in the 52-page quarterly publication Wood Resource Quarterly (WRQ).
