Effects of Silviculture Practices on the Engineering Properties of Northern Hardwood Species of the Lake States
Snapshot: Wood quality is an important determinant of its end use and therefore its value. Recent proliferation of novel engineered wood products has created new potential uses for hardwood. However, a greater understanding of wood quality is needed to allow continued development of these novel wood products.
