Various forest protection techniques are constantly improving. The so-called "indicator sticks" first developed by Gisborne were a distinct advance in estimating the moisture content of forest fuels. The article describes an improved scale for weighing these sticks. The scale reads directly in terms of wood-stick moisture and eliminates the necessity of dry sticks weighing exactly 100 grams.
