The commercial feasibility of sawmilling mainly depends on the expected productionyield. At the same time, the choice of sawing method is one of primary factors affecting yield.Therefore, choosing a reasonable sawing method is also necessary in small-diameter logs sawingprocess. In this study, a novel sawing method was proposed, and a comparison was made betweenthe volume yield for the most common sawing method in China, and the yield produced by anovel sawing method. This study shows that hexagon sawing give higher yield than the othersawing methods. The mean yield for the whole diameter range is: 82.7 % for hexagon sawing,53.3 % for live sawing, 56.7 % for hexagon sawing, 63.2 % for hexagon sawing.
