Timber Cruising -- The Time it Takes
Abstract:Line-plot timber cruising in the Central and Lake States has been expedited by the use of new techniques and tally forms. A cruising study involving 1,749 trees in 156 circular fifth-acre samples resulted in an average time of five minutes per plot for the time on plots only. Board foot volume differences between three methods of computing were less than two percent.
