In modern sawmilling, every bit of timber that enters the lumber mill will be used. The best will be transformed into veneer, straight sections will become saw logs, while off cuts get chipped, flaked or turned into sawdust. These chips, flakes and sawdust go on to create a variety of products, with any left overs being finally burnt – often to produce the electricity that runs the mill.
