The percentage of sawdust is smaller in Scandinavian than in West Coast sawmills, but the percentage of slabs, edgings and trimmings is greater. West Coast mills obtain higher lumber yields than the European mills. Sweden uses 18 per cent of the log for pulp chips; the West Coast only from 2 to 4 per cent. Other interesting and useful comparisons are made by the author. They indicate the lines along which improvement may be possible in American log utilization.
