ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR SAWING AND DRYING STRUCTURAL LUMBER FROM SECOND-GROWTH LOBLOLLY PINE (PINUS TAEDA) By Robert R. Maeglin and William T. Simpson SUMMARY The processing of second-growth pine is a major problem. The combination of juvenile wood, compression wood and growth stresses makes the manufacture of straight lumber difficult.

[Robert R Maeglin; William Turner Simpson; Forest Products Laboratory (U.S.)]. Abstract Lumber was sawn from suppressed-growth ponderosa pine trees, 6 to 16 inches in diameter, harvested near Flagstaff, Arizona. This paper presents grade recover and properties for dry 2 by 4's sawn from the logs and graded by a variety of structural grading systems.

ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR SAWING AND DRYING STRUCTURAL LUMBER FROM SECOND-GROWTH LOBLOLLY PINE (PINUS TAEDA) is possible to minimize the warping of second-growth loblolly pine (Pinus taeda.

Field methods for rapid determination of wood density in trees have evolved from increment borer, torsiometer, Pilodyn, and nail withdrawal into sophisticated electronic tools of resistance drilling measurement. A partial resistance drilling approach coupled with knowledge of internal tree density distribution may offer an alternative solution for wood density surveys in the future.

The template for the following discussion of methods is illustrated in Fig. 1 which is a modification of the conceptual model proposed by Switzer and Nelson ().All forests fit within the conceptual model in Fig. 1; however, in analysis and interpretation the type of forest needs to be of the earlier work on nutrient cycling was undertaken on Northern Hemisphere.

Types of Wood to Use for Cordwood. Rob Roy is Director of the Earthwood Building School, which has specialized in cordwood masonry instruction since Rob and his wife, Jaki, have built four innovative cordwood homes for themselves sinceincluding the Earthwood home where they have lived for over three decades.

Dry Seasoned, usually to a moisture content of 19% or less. Dry Rot A type of decay in seasoned wood, caused by fungi. Eastern S-P-F Lumber of the S-P-F group produced in the eastern provinces of Canada (i.e., Manitoba and Saskatchewan) and in the northeastern United States.

Abstract. During the 20 th century, the Pacific Northwest (western Oregon and Washington, coastal British Columbia, and southeastern Alaska) produced some of the highest quality timber in North America. Forests were old and trees were large; wood products from this region were easily distinguished from those made from timber produced in other regions in North America.

This paper provides a review on the use of acoustics to measure stiffness of standing trees, stems, and logs. An outline is given of the properties of wood and how these are related to stiffness and acoustic velocity throughout the tree. Factors are described that influence the speed of sound in wood, including the different types of acoustic waves which propagate in tree stems and lumber.

When a conifer shoot is displaced from its vertical position, compression wood (CW) is formed on the under side and can eventually return the shoot to its original position. Changes in cell wall structure and chemistry associated with CW are likely to result from differential gene/protein expression.

SOUTHERN BLUE GUM (H) Southern Blue Gum (Eucalyptus globulus), is a large hardwood found natually occurring in the cooler districts of. Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody is an organic material – a natural composite of cellulose fibers that are strong in tension and embedded in a matrix of lignin that resists compression.

Wood is sometimes defined as only the secondary xylem in the stems of trees, or it is defined more broadly to include the same. A craftsman's question about screen door materials kicks off a long discussion about the qualities of various wood species, old growth and second growth.

October 4, Warp in Drying Causes and cures for warpage when drying lumber. May 4, Troubleshooting Cupping in a Bar Top A solid Ipe bar top starts to show cupping. This study examined drying rates for loblolly pine harvested at different seasons.

Most of the drying occurred in the first month after felling. Moisture content was reduced between one-third and one-half of initial moisture content. This amount of drying almost doubles the energy value of the woody biomass with little to no additional costs.

From Figure 6 and according to Adewopo et al.9 () under dry conditions a heat treatment of °C for 8 hours can be safely applied to pine, sweetgum, and oak without posing a significant negative impact on their essential mechanical properties.

FIGS. 18 and 19 show an alternative method of preparing the slats by sawing rather than slicing. DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS. The typical logs used in the method of the present invention will be from about cm ( inches) at their smaller end and be about m ( feet) long.

Southern yellow is a term used to describe several hard pine species (shortleaf, slash, and loblolly) sharing similar characteristics. The wood from these species is relatively heavy, hard, strong, stiff, and shock resistant.

Southern yellow pines shrink quite a bit while drying, but the wood is quite stable once it has been seasoned. MacFall, J.

Roots in Soil: Unearthing the complexities of roots and their rhizospheres. For instance, if a load (P) of one hundred pounds is uniformly supported by a vertical post with a cross-sectional area (A) of ten square inches, the unit compressive stress is ten pounds per square is measured in inches (or other linear unit).

A unit strain is the strain per unit of length. Thus if a post 10 inches long before compression is inches long under the compressive. Project Methods For the stand-level study, we are using standard point-count protocols to survey breeding birds during the spring and Sherman live traps to sample winter small mammal communities.

For the shortleaf pine-bluestem study, we used drift fence arrays and pit-fall traps to sample amphibian and reptile communities within untreated, late-rotation control stands and in restored stands. The s PhiPT values were low as expected for naturally outcrossing species, in loblolly pine and in shortleaf pine, suggesting most diversity occurs within seed sources, but for current day samples PhiPT was more than twice a high, in loblolly pine and in shortleaf pine, suggesting increasing diversity among seed sources.

Structural features of the sawmill included a circular log-cutoff saw, ring debarker, headrig, resaws, two lumber edgers, lumber trimsaw, automatic lumber sorter, and chippers. (See Wagner et al. for a more detailed description of the mill.). FIG. 5 shows in partial perspective a lumber product produced by the method.

FIGS. show in cross section alternative layups of the lumber products. FIG. 9 is a partial perspective end view, with considerable vertical exaggeration, of an experimental panel for producing an edge densified lumber product and a comparison control sample.

The ultimate bending strength of green, clear wood specimens of coast Douglas- fir and loblolly pine are reached at an average stress of and kPa, respectively” [Ritter, ]. Figure Bending in wood members produces tension and compression in the extreme fibers, horizontal shear, and vertical deflection.

This veneer obtained by this method has the desired cathedral wood grain pattern, and is used to cut, for example, the species white oak, red oak, black walnut, and black cherry in the USA.

In another method, a quarter section of the log is placed on a lathe-type machine, producing veneer sheets expressing the tangential face of the log. New and improved products - composites 12 1.

The mechanical values listed at the top of the page represent the averages between both old-growth lumber and second-growth lumber. On the whole, old-growth lumber tends to be slightly heavier (29 lbs/ft 3 versus 26), harder ( lb f Janka hardness versus ), and stronger (10, lb f /in 2 modulus of rupture versus 7,) than younger.

Which of the following soft wood species used for structural lumber have the highest Fiber bending and Modulus of Elasticity (E) values. Cedar and Larch.

Loblolly Pine and Ponderosa Pine. White spruce and Western White Pine. Douglas Fir and Southern Yellow Pine. A band saw and “Dixie” circular were erected at Hudson; also a planning mill and the necessary dry kilns, and these were in operation until the fall of During its Arkansas experience, the Hudson River Lumber Company produced and sold at least million feet of excellent quality short leaf southern pine lumber.

The hardwoods of this region are chiefly the oaks, hickories, and gums. Longleaf pine is especially valuable as structural timber, and for this purpose is one of the most important trees in the world. The southern pines (known collectively in the lumber trade as southern yellow pine) supply a large proportion of the lumber cut of the United States.

The major contents of the book are dry process hard boards from recycled newsprint paper fibres, abrasive kraft base paper from sun hemp (crotolaria jauncia), production of soda semi chemical pulp from sesbania sesban (linn.) merr., high yield pulps from eta reed, the influence of clay addition on flotation deinking, alternative uses for waste.

Much of the land previously occupied by longleaf pine has now, as a result of fire exclusion, become dominated by fire-sensitive loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) and a variety of hardwood tree species (Outcalt and Sheffield ). In the absence of fire, many sites support high-density stands that contain midstorey layers of trees and shrubs that.

The Escambia Experimental Forest was established through a year lease agreement with the TR Miller Mill Company of Brewton, AL. This 3,acre tract in southwest Alabama was selected as typical of second-growth longleaf pine forests that, at the time, covered about million acres in south Alabama and northwest Florida.

Second growth the forest that replaced the virgin forests that once covered the region. In some regions of the SE US, the second growth has been cut, and the third or even fourth forest is in the process of being harvested.

Seed-tree method an even-aged regeneration method in which a .heterobasidion since it affects slash and loblolly pine in SE, spread to root grass. Alternative hypothesis for wood decay. fungi has dormant cells in the tree but the oxygen from the wound allows wood to dry out to make the fungi active.
