A Line Intersect Technique for Assessing Logging Waste
Abstract:A line sampling technique has been evolved for the assessment of logging waste remaining after clearfelling operations. The method was developed to obtain economically acceptable estimates of volume by reducing the amount of measurement of waste pieces required by conventional plot sampling. The method is described and the underlying theory presented. Its applicability is illustrated by the results of field trials carried out in the Kaingaroa State Forest, New Zealand, in connection with the sale of Pinus radiata to a large integrated pulp and paper plant.
