Abstract
This summary report presents the main findings of a study of systems for the production of aspen veneer logs in northern Ontario. The case studies, which took place in 2001 and 2002, covered four types of operations: in-woods chipping, satellite yards, roundwood merchandizing at roadside, and roundwood production at the stump. The advantages and disadvantages of each system for the production of veneer logs are given, along with production cost estimates for each system. A report presenting further productivity and quality data, and a detailed cost analysis (in an Excel spreadsheet) are available to FERIC members and partners on request.

Abstract
As increasing volumes of short-rotation hybrid poplar reach maturity, various sectors of the composites wood products industry have shown an interest in their potential as substitutes for aspen or other low-density species. Veneer manufacturers were particularly curious of the suitability of these hybrids for the manufacture of laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and plywood. This study was designed to provide some guidance to Forintek members.
