Abstract:This article describes a method of making volume tables for use in extensive forest inventory surveys. The method produces tables that take into account local forest and lumbering conditions, are adaptable to large areas, and are easy to apply. A statistical analysis of the author's data shows that a reliable volume table can be made, based only on diameter if measurements are taken on about 1,000 trees.
