This publication presents information on fiber weight and pulping characteristics of the logging residue of red spruce, red maple, white birch, white pine, balsam fir, hemlock, and aspen. The accumulation of evidence concerning the amount of fiber in the present logging residue and the pulping potential of that residue justifies this synthesis of the various studies in a single publication.
