Intergrown knots, partially intergrown knots, loose knots/holes, spike knots, pith, bark pockets/blemishes, resin pockets, needle flecks, and wane were identified as separate defect categories.
The frequency of intergrown knots, partially intergrown knots, loose knots, and bark pockets was significantly lower in boards from pruned logs than in boards from unpruned logs.
The frequency of intergrown knots and bark pockets in boards from unpruned logs increased significantly with increased log height class.
The average size of intergrown knots, bark pockets, and wane in boards from unpruned logs increased significantly with increased log height class.
All the significant differences in defect frequency showed a trend of increasing the frequency of defects with increasing log height class of unpruned logs, with an exception for partially intergrown knots, where the trend was reversed.

For example, the smaller the tree diameter at breast height, the higher the frequency of intergrown knots in boards from both pruned and unpruned logs of that tree; a large tree diameter at breast height signals large a reas of clearwood in sideboards from pruned logs, etc.
Intergrown knots, partially intergrown knots, loose knots/holes, spike knots, bark pockets/blemishes, resin pockets, needle flecks, and wane were classified as separate defect categories.
In boards from pruned logs, the frequency of intergrown knots in trees with small DBH was higher (p = 0.
In boards from unpruned logs, the frequency of intergrown knots in trees with small DBH (15.
In boards from unpinned logs, the average area of intergrown knots in trees with small DBH (166.
