Abstract : The report is intended to cover tree species that grow large enough and in sufficient volume in the United States so that they could be considered for veneer. While the use of veneer and plywood is increasing, the timber available in such well-known veneer species as yellow birch and Douglas-fir has declined. As a result, it is becoming more important to known the potential for making useful veneer from all species that grow in the United States. To make the information readily available for the user, it has been condensed into eight summary tables that are listed early in the report. For each species the factors covered include volume and log characteristics, physical and mechanical properties of wood, cutting and drying of veneer, and quality and uses of dry veneer.
