A Modified Plot Method of Timber Cruising Applicable in Southern New England
Abstract:The taking of inventories on the Eli Whitney Forest at New Haven, Connecticut, has led to the adoption of a modified plot method of timber estimating, which is here described in the belief that it may prove useful elsewhere under similar conditions. The investigation demonstrates that the plot method can satisfactorily be substituted for the strip method, and that the former method can be applied by one man in such a manner as to reduce estimating time without unduly sacrificing accuracy of results.
