Description

ANNOTATION: This report presents tables and equations for estimating total cubic volumes of wood, wood residue, and bark for ponderosa pine, western larch, and Douglas fir. The equations and tables provide a means for estimating wood and bark residue volumes from tops, bole sections, and smaller sub-merchantable stems. Tables and equations can also be used to estimate total cubic volume for the size classes, species, and locale sampled.
