Butt Log Volume Estimators
Abstract:The relative residual variations of several volume estimators were compared using over 11,000 butt log measurements made by National Forest scalers on logs from timber sales in most western Regions. Two equations are recommended for general use: one based on measurements of length and diameters of both ends of butt logs; the other on length and midlog diameter. The need for an objective test of measurement methods and volume estimators is outlined. Forest Sci. 28:489-503.
