A New Method of Measuring the Actual Volume of Wood in Stacks
Abstract:The author describes a photographic method for determining the solid-wood content of stacked pulpwood that appears to be fast, inexpensive, and reasonably accurate, and therefore to provide a means for purchasing wood on a sound, scientific basis. During the past year 21,000 cords have been evaluated by the Nekoosa-Edwards Paper Company by this method. All the work was done by one girl, who took the photographs and completed the records for each car of wood evaluated.
