Many log sellers in the western United States face price schedules requiring that a given percentage of the volume be delivered in logs of a specified length. A simple heuristic procedure was developed for deriving a set of log prices which, when used in making decisions for bucking individual trees, provides nearly optimal stand value while meeting volume-length restrictions. For. Sci. 35(1):271-276.
