Abstract : This paper discusses major needs for improved measurement of lumber moisture content prior to, during, and after drying. The need to define more clearly what is meant by moisture content in lumber in light of its inherent variability and to specify more precisely desired accuracies for green, partially dry, and completely air- or kiln-dried lumber is also discussed.
