  author={Alexander ClarkA. Clark and Richard F. Daniels},
The green weight of southern pine tree-length roundwood delivered to the pulp mill is generally known. However, for optimum mill efficiency it is desirable to know dry weight. The moisture content of tree-length pine logs is quite variable. The moisture content of pine tree-length logs increases significantly with increasing stem height. Moisture content also varies with tree age and geographic location. It is envisioned that a truckload of tree-length logs would be bored at the scales to… CONTINUE READING
