4-Day Intro to Lumber Grading Workshop

A four-day workshop will take place December 4-7, 2023 at Kirtland Community College in Grayling, MI. The workshop will include a thorough study and explanation of the NHLA Rules Book, emphasizing the basics of hardwood lumber inspection and the manufacturing of railroad ties.

Who should take this course?

The value of “rules conscious” employees enables a more deliberate manufactured end product, a higher yield from the log, and a better sense of the value of the lumber being handled. This workshop gives yardmen, sawyers, edgermen, sales and office staff, and management an introduction to lumber inspection.

See the attached flyer below for complete information about the workshop.
