Scaling for Veneer at Michigan Veneer


In light of the ups and downs of the pulp markets these days, it is a good thing to know when you have sawlog quality logs and even better, veneer quality logs. Please join the Upper Kennebec Valley Chapter of the Maine Woodlands Association as we meet with Log Buyer Bob Bond of Michigan Veneer at their New Sharon log yard on Saturday, March 18th from 9 a.m. to noon. Bob will guide us through scaling logs and what makes a veneer log, and how to get the best scale out of your logs. We will look at good samples and get some scaling practice in! This will be a rain or shine event, no need to pre-register, just show up, and everyone is welcome! The address is 5 Weeks Mills Road, right at the Route 2 intersection. The yard might be muddy at that point so we might have to park on the side of the Weeks Mills Road. Saturday, March 18, 9 to noon. Any questions, contact
Patty Cormier at 592-2238 or patty.cormier@maine.gov.
