The mean annual growth at different ages is shown in cords of
peeled pulpwood in Figure 11 and in board feet of saw-log material
in Figure 12. For average sites pulpwood reaches its maximum at
65 years, saw timber at 82 years. To produce the greatest amount of
high-quality lumber, however, would undoubtedly require considerably
longer than 82 years, since natural pruning of spruce does
not take place at an early age.
