Standard destructive tests on 300 small, clear, specimens of tanoak from southwestern Oregon showed that the strength and related properties of the wood are much like those of the oaks. Similarity in wood characteristics suggests the likelihood that the estimated 1,700,000,000 board feet of tanoak saw timber in Oregon could be used for the same products as those for which oaks are satisfactory.
