Sometimes higher prices do, that’s where special order stuff come into play such as fender logs or floating logs being big money for not so good logs. We will see a size of knot such as 1” radius some times it’s 1” circumference depending on which grade as well as where it’s going.I've only delivered white pine to two very local places. One a family owned mill and the other a good sized log yard that has a Hancock buyer/scaler come around regularly. They both do it the same way. They want the branches trimmed flush with the log and they measure (by eye mostly) the largest diameter of the colored part of the knot. Sounds exact to say 3" red knot or 2" black knot max but it is still open to a lot of interpertation based on where and how many knots and what the rest of the log looks like or the log price. Higher prices brings more scrutiny.
