Accuracy of height accumulation volumes froth penta prism caliper measurements of 20 standing white pines in southern New Hampshire was tested using height accumulation volumes determined from measurements obtained by actually climbing the trees as a standard. Results indicated there is less than a 1-in-20 chance that errors in individual tree volume estimates from penta prism measurements will differ from the standard by more than 2 cubic feet or 12 board feet.
