[Archive] Classification and presentation of softwood sawlogs (2nd edition)

Lead Author: Forestry Commission

Home publication [Archive] Classification and presentation of softwood sawlogs (2nd edition)

These recommendations are agreed by Forest Enterprise, the British Timber Merchants' Association, and the UK Softwood Sawmillers Association. The normal practice of the Forestry Commission will be to classify parcels of sawlogs offered for sale into four categories: green, red, short green, and log pole, for which descriptions are given. The FC aims to maximise the proportion of green category logs, subject to appropriate stand conditions and market requirements. This publication is still available in hard copy.
