Title: Lumber grade recoverey from Hawaii-grown robusta Eucalyptus logs

Description: In part to supplement meager data on lumber grade yield of Hawaii-grown timber, 30 robusta eucalyptus logs were shipped to a Michigan sawmill for processing. The logs were from 12 trees in three different stands. The lumber produced was graded according to National Hardwood Lumber Association standards. The sample was too small to provide a basis for predicting grade yields, but robusta yields, by log grade, compared favorably with yields of common hardwoods on the United States mainland.
