The frequency and weight distributions of branch litter under lodgepole pine stands and the relation between weight of fuel and surface area were investigated using 1/10,000-acre circular plots. A graph is presented from which total surface area in the square feet for certain diameter classes of branch litter may be computed using total weight of the fuel in those classes.
