With increasing economy in wood utilization, there is need for more precise means of converting stacked wood to solid cubic feet, and board feet to units of stacked wood. Constant converting factors are admittedly approximations and may be wide of the mark. This article presents more accurate converting factors by recognizing the relation between them and such things as the size of the sticks and the percentage of round ones in the stack when the solid cubic feet in a stack is to be estimated; and between the converting factors and the length and diameters of logs when board feet are to be converted to units of stacked wood.
