    Common Name(s): Eastern White Pine Scientific Name: Pinus strobus Distribution: Eastern North America (also widely grown on plantations throughout its natural range) Tree Size: ft ( m) tall, ft m) trunk diameter (historically older-growth trees were much larger) Average Dried Weight: 25 lbs/ft 3 ( kg/m 3) Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC), Properties for Visually Graded Dimension Lumber from In-Grade Tests of Full-Size Specimens). Reference design values for visually graded timbers, decking, and some species and grades of dimension lumber are based on pro - visions of ASTM Standard D () (Establishing Structural Grades and Related Allowable Properties for.

    Western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla), mostly found in west coast of North America, is a highly underutilized and low-value timber species, partially because of the presence of wet pockets, which makes wood processing challenging, especially when drying and sawing. The present work studies the modification of western hemlock using a hydrothermal process, which induced significant changes in . Here is the specific gravity of western hemlock (Table ). Example 2 How many cubic meters of solid western hemlock wood are needed to produce one tonne (1, kg) of oven-dry bleached kraft pulp (kappa 30)? Formula 1 gives 10 = [(1, kg – DP) / 1, kg]* solving: DP = kg of oven-dry fiber per tonne of pulp.

      Western Hemlock of course is also an important medicine among the coastal First Nations peoples. Like many conifers, the sap or pitch is medicinal, used as a poultice to heal wounds and burns, as well as mixed with fat to form an aromatic salve that is useful as a chest rub for colds, to massage sore muscles, and to protect against sunburn. The following table is Structural Lumber Wood Engineering Properties. Modulus of Elasticity of Wood, Wood Engineering Design Data. Modulus of elasticity also referred to as Tensile Modulus or Young's Modulus. Elastic ratios for various wood species at approximately 12% moisture content - see bottom of webpage.

Lorraine Joseph Markwardt — Alfalfa. Author. Comments: Western Hemlock is the largest of the hemlocks, and is one of the most valuable sources of exportable lumber for Canada; the species is also the state tree of Washington.

When compared to Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis), Western Hemlock generally has narrower growth rings, though both species can have tightly spaced growth rings.

It is found typically along both the east and west sides of the Coast Range and the Interior wet belt west of the Rocky Mountains.

It has a narrow crown with a characteristically drooping top. It has delicate, feathery foliage and down. For the best in film horror, mystery and the macabre Books • magazines • dvds • posters • collectibles.

Western hemlock is moderately light in weight and moderate in strength. It is moderate in its hardness, stiffness, and shock resistance.

It has moderately large shrinkage, about the same as Douglas-fir. Green hemlock lumber contains considerably more water than Douglas-fir, and requires longer kiln drying time. Western Cedars Select Structural 1, No. 1 1, No. 2Western Hemlock Select Structural 1, No.

1 1, No. 2 1, Western Woods Select Structural 1, Growth: Western Hemlock typically grows feet (m). The tallest Western Hemlock is over feet (73m) tall. The oldest are over years old. Habitat: Seedlings of Western Hemlock often begin life on the decaying wood of “nurse logs.” or stumps in the shade of Douglas Firs.

They usually start out growing slowly in the shade, much faster in full sunlight when an event occurs. The effect of thermal modification (TM) on the color of western hemlock wood and its physical and mechanical properties were investigated.

The focus of this study was the prediction of material. Design values provided herein are for Western softwood species manufactured and shipped by mills in the 12 contiguous Western states and Alaska. Except as otherwise noted, the values are computed in accordance with ASTM standards based on clear-wood tests or.

Eastern hemlock, on the other hand, is a conifer tree that is grown for its foliage and is considered safe and non-poisonous. Its needles are used as a tea.

History/Folklore: The Greeks recognized Western hemlock as a poison. As a convicted prisoner, it was a Western hemlock drink that Socrates was condemned to drink.The Mechanical Properties Of Wood.
