Log, Lumber and Tree Grading Workshop, Oct. 27-28, Indiana
« on: August 30, 2011, 11:43:49 AM »
Hi all,

Dr. Dan Cassens is holding anothe Hardwood Log, Lumber, and Tree Grading Workshop Oct. 27-28 at the Southeast Purdue Ag Center (SEPAC) near Butlerville, IN. This event is put on by the Wood Research Lab, Purdue University.

It's a great course to get a feel for the whole process from forestry and trees to lumber production and sales. We process a tree to lumber and compare prices along the way.

Here's the official description:

Quote
PURPOSE:
To provide participants a working knowledge of    hardwood lumber grades and the U.S. Forest Service hardwood log and tree grades and their relationship to each other and product utilization; the opportunity to    become familiar with and to recognize defect indicators and their importance to determining log quality; and to illustrate the application of grading to standing timber.

AUDIENCE:
Anyone needing a basic understanding of how log and tree quality affects final lumber value will find the  session useful. These include portable mill operators, foresters and consultants responsible for timber sales, as well as log and timber buyers, mill personnel,    loggers and landowners.

INSTRUCTORS:
Daniel Cassens, Wood Products Specialist, Ron Rathfon and Don Carlson, Foresters, and Daniel Warner, all with the Department of Forestry & Natural Resources,
Purdue University and Jeff Settle, Utilization Specialist with the Indiana Division of Forestry, will instruct the program. Cassens has 30 years of experience with the hardwood industry and has made numerous presentations on hardwood quality and log grading to the NHLA, industry groups, portable mill operators and universities. Ron and Don are active in the management of Purdue woodlands and conducting educational events.

REGISTRATION:
Enrollment is limited. The registration fee is $150 per person.  The fee covers the cost of materials, breaks, and lunch. If you pre-register and cannot attend,   Refunds will be made until October 21, 2011. The cost of other meals and lodging are not included in the course fee.

EQUIPMENT:
Participants should bring their own lumber grading rule and log scale stick, if available, as well as a calculator. A tape measure may be used as a substitute. Also bring your rain gear in the event of inclement weather. These materials may be ordered from Forestry Suppliers at www.forestrysuppliers.com. Type in lumber grading rule, or log scale stick.

SAFETY:
 Each attendee assumes responsibility for his/her own safety. Please bring a hard hat, earplugs, safety glasses and steel-toed shoes. This equipment is required.

If anyone is interested I'll put up the registration link when it becomes available.

4 hour drive and 150 bucks dosent seem bad.

I think it would shed some light on the whole process and the economy of it, yes.
