When the tops were left on for two weeks after the trees were felled, the moisture content in paper birch (Betula papyrifera) boles was 20 percent less than in bolts made immediately after felling and stacked for drying. The moisture content of northern red oak (Quercus rubra) boles was unaffected by this treatment. Thus, delayed bucking may be a means of decreasing drying time for some species.
