“Founded in 1898 with the purpose of creating a uniform set of grading rules, the National Hardwood Lumber Association seeks to offer several opportunities for instruction of the basics of the NHLA grading system.

The lumber grading short course plays a vital role in the industry benefitting anyone who has an impact on the buying, selling or handling of hardwood lumber. These courses are perfect for salesmen, purchasing agents, sawyers, edger and trimmer operators, and yard managers.

Jack English from the NHLA gave a three-day short course to eight gentlemen from the Tewksbury, MA yard. Among them are two from the office inside sales support, three from the kiln dried lumber re-inspection line and three from the mill who re-inspect lumber after milling. Congratulations and good work ! “
