Acceptable Logs

A quality product starts with quality logs. Logs that do not meet our quality standards will be rejected. Save time and transport costs by learning about our quality standards before you send logs to Sebasticook Lumber.

Quality Standards: 

  • Spiral Seams will be culled
  • Limbs 1/3 the diameter of the small end of the long are unacceptable
  • Surface defects can disqualify the log from being veneer
  • Ring shake, star hearts, cat faces, knots, grain, mineral, and bird peck will be downgraded/discounted
  • Deductions and downgrading after 1″ of sweep/8′ of log (double swept small logs will be culled)

Scaler decision is final and specs can change without notice. Logs not meeting specifications will be scaled as mixed hardwood pallet. Logs with 2 limbs greater than 1/3 the diameter of the scaling cylinder with less than 7′ of log below will be paid as mixed hardwood pallet with deductions.
