N2 - Two main divisions are apparent in current studies of volume table construction. The first is the averaging of tree volumes by graphic means; the second is an attempt to express taper or volume of a tree by a mathematical formula. Some investigators have recognized the variation in form or shape of the sample trees and have given some consideration to this in their studies. Others have seen fit to ignore a difference in taper and average all trees in the sample, usually on a diameter-height basis.
