Abstract : Charts are presented for determining yields of dimension from the top three grades of alder lumber. The basic chart for each grade is for random-width material, 1-inch minimum, with an adjustment for determining yields in specific widths greater than 1 inch. Yield and cost comparisons can be made of the various grades and grade mixes to obtain the most economical choice for a specific cutting order. (Author)
