Publisher description for Return To Log Calculator
The mountain pine beetle epidemic has decimated the British Columbia Interior lodgepole pine resource. Increased log checking and lower long-term harvest volumes are affecting conversion economics for sawmills. In response to these challenges, FPInnovations and B.C. Forestry Innovation Investment have developed the ???Return to Log Calculator for Checked MPB Logs???. This software was designed to help sawmills measure the impact of the epidemic on their bottom line. After entering costs, prices and mill production statistics, the software calculates break-even costs for different logs, operating margins and lumber recoveries.
