A method for the quantification of coarse woody debris in terms of the total length of downed material is presented. The method combines relascope and line intersect sampling theory. Estimation is based on a count of downed logs using a relascope instrument along survey lines. In cost-efficiency comparisons with line intersect and circular plot sampling, the proposed method was found to be a competitive alternative. For. Sci. 44(1):58-63.
