The linear relationship of merchantable cubic-foot volume per unit of basal area to average stand height in black spruce stands in Saskatchewan is examined. Seventy-eight percent of the variation in merchantable cubic foot stand volume in this study is related to average stand height and basal area per acre. The equations developed may be used to predict merchantable volume of black spruce stands from estimates of basal area per acre and average stand height. A form to facilitate the tallying of trees selected in point sampling by ten-foot height classes is presented. On this form compilation of average stand height and volume per acre may be done in a routine manner.
