Same is true in Masschusetts. Some professors tried to get consultants
and state foresters to grade timber while marking it. It doesn't work. I
have my own timber grading system, good- bad- and ugly. The serious
timber buyers spend a great deal of time looking at the timber they may
be spending tens of thousands of dollars for. I let them worry about the
grade. <G>
