Use of the Cull Caliper in Scaling White Oak Stave Bolts
Abstract:Because forest measurements are time-consuming, eye estimates have come into use in many cases. But foresters do have the Biltmore stick to check and calibrate the cruiser's eye on tree diameters and heights; and now they have the cull caliper to check eye estimates and provide a measure of discarded sections of stave bolts in determining the net scale on stave operations.
