Marketing Hardwood Veneer, Stave, Sawlogs, Hardwood University

Discuss tree quality and log merchandising. The highest-value use of our hardwood resource is for fine face veneers. Excellent markets have always existed for “perfect” trees and logs. Marketing of “somewhat less than perfect” trees and logs can present a challenge. The practicing forester may not be sure what a particular veneer buyer can accept and why log or tree value varies widely and changes weekly. Furthermore, the markets for the veneer itself change. A tour of the Danzer facility and showroom as well as a field trip to a logging site is included (Hartog, Gazo).
