Conservation Training

Visual Merchandising

December 17, 2021

9:00 am – 3:30 pm
Location: Tigerton, WI

Join Mike Demchik, Ph.D. and Tigerton Lumber Co. as we follow three trees from standing stock to milled wood. In this workshop we will explore how defects move through a log by evaluating the standing stock of three species, cutting them down, merchandising and grading the down logs, and milling them on site. Throughout this process we will discuss:

  • log grading
  • standing stock grading
  • internal rate of return
  • milling
  • grading and scaling of lumber
