  • Pine (Redwood) trade sorting

    When it comes to grading there are as many ideas of grading as there are sawmills. However there are standard sorting rules that provide the basics - such as EN- 1611-1, Nordic Timber - Grading rules (The "Blue book") and Guiding principles for grading of Swedish sawn timber (The "Green Book"). Our sales basically follow the green books classification, U/S (I II III IV) V VI but today the sorting is more strict than the descriptions in the rules. Sorting is done either manually or by camera. The size, appearance and placing of the knots is important, but graders must also scan for other defects. The rules describe what is tolerated in the different grades for the face and the two sides. The back is allowed to be 1 quality lower.
