Abstract : Typical unbarked lodgepole pine forest residue (minimum diameter, 3 in.) was used to produce structural-type flake-boards. Results indicate no technical difficulties in producing structural flakeboards (either an all-flake board or a flake-faced foard with a sliver core). Minimum performance requirements for U.S. acceptance require definition before specific structural boards can be recommended and designed. Interior core-type particleboards were made by processing pulp chips produced in the field. Several additional types of core-type particleboards which meet current specifications were also made without encountering technical difficulties. (Author)
