Abstract or Summary
  • It has been observed that edging flitches into lumber unnecessarily reduces the yield of cut stock. This research investigated the yield of cut stock from unedged red alder (Alnus rubra) flitches, and compared it to yields attained from boards subjected to a variety of edging strategies: conventional, light-edging, actual, severe and no edging. Results showed that unedged lumber yielded 18%,12%,9%,4% more cutting volume than severe, actual, conventional and light-edging, respectively. An economic analysis showed that a vertically-integrated sawmill/roughmill operation producing 20 million board feet of red alder lumber could increase its net revenue by $1,000,000.00 per year by reducing the amount of material removed during edging. These gains can be realized even when the additional costs of handling, drying, and trucking unedged or partially edged flitches are considered.
