Sampling Error of Cruises in the California Pine Region
Abstract:To organize cruises so as to steer a desirable middle course between high accuracy at too much cost and little accuracy at low cost is a problem many foresters have to contend with. It can only be done when the cruiser in charge has a real knowledge of the required standard of accuracy and of the variability existing in the timber stand. The study reported in this paper works out estimates of the average accuracy of cruises in California pine stands and ontlines methods whereby the accuracy may be estimated for particular cruises.
