Abstract : Large volumes of red pine (Pinus resinosa) from plantations in the Lake States and the Northeastern States are about to appear on the saw log market. One of the most important products of small saw logs is studs (2 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft.). A study has been conducted by the FPL which examines the relationship of two industrial and one FPL sawing method on the subsequent warp in the studs from this species. Results generally indicate that the species is suitable for studs. There is significantly less warp in studs sawn by the FPL method than the industry methods. Also one of the industry methods is significantly better than the other. (Author)
