Title: Proper Edging and Trimming Will Help Improve Lumber Value
Author: Araman, Philip A.
Source: HMA Link. 3(5): 6-7
Description: Decisions on where to edge and trim waning edged boards, or to trim other boards, can have a major effect on the performance of a sawmill. Optimum decisions are difficult for a number of reasons, including: complexity of grading rules; operator skills; operator fatigue or lack of interest at times; and, the inability of operators to include lumber prices in decisions. This article discusses the results from a study of three medium-sized hardwood sawmills and indicates that edging and trimming can be improved significantly.
