Abstract/Summary The sawing recovery rates of chainsaws and mini-bandsaws used on Leyte Island, the Philippines to produce sawn timber from smallholder tree farms are compared through sawing trials. The sawing recovery rate for a mini-bandsaw is 52% while that for chainsaws is 39%. The sawing trials found that log sizes and the cross-section areas of boards showed a weak linear relationship to the sawing recovery rate for sample logs sawn. Significant differences in sawing recovery rates between the saw operators involved in the sawing trials were also detected. This paper mainly reports the results for comparing the sawmilling recovery for chainsaws and mini-bandsaws, while the financial as well as policy implications of the differences in sawing recovery rate between these two saw types are discussed in a separate paper in these Proceedings.
