    I know humans gets a 10% quantity bonus when they chop and in fel that means 22 boards per swing instead of 20 but does that mean they get more or less colored boards when compared to the elves "knowledge of nature" skill?

    In my humble experience, I've found that I get much higher yields when it comes to the colored ores and lumber if I'm an elf.

    For wood - definitely elves; they get more chops per tree than humans

    For Ore, however, the only thing definitive I've seen is more gems. My personal tests showed no difference between ore amounts or the colored/iron ratio (as the yield for ore is so much smaller than for wood, it's probably that the additional occasional ore for being human amounts to about the same extra they'd get from digging as an elf). So, it's better to be human as a miner, for the extra capacity before being overweight.
