Abstract:Sampling methods which short cut routine jobs and yet give accurate results are becoming progressively more popular in all fields of human endeavor. As a further contribution towards work simplification, this article presents a simple but accurate method of estimating the harvest from selectively cut forests. It analyzes step by step from actual field trials, the accuracy attained by various alternative routes in the sampling process, and concludes with instruction for efficient, practical application of the results.
