Dead southern pine sawtimber previously attacked by bark beetles was harvested 12 months after foliage fade and converted into lumber. Lumber yield on a volume and grade basis was significantly less for the beetle-killed trees than for a similar set of normal green trees. Upper logs of the beetle-killed trees showed a more serious grade and volume loss than the lower logs. Decay and borer damage were the main causes of grade yield loss.
