ANNOTATION: Procedures are given for estimating weights of potential residue from Douglas fir and western hemlock. Preliminary estimates are given for six other species. Estimates are provided in pounds per tree and pounds per square foot of basal area for a 6 or 8 inch top. Estimates are also separated into less than 3 inch DBH and greater than or equal to 3 inch DBH. Tabular weigths include foliage, live and dead branchwood, and non-merchantable top.
