Abstract:If the standard measure for stumpage sales becomes the cubic foot rather than the board foot, the advantages will far outweigh the inconveniences and a further change to metric units will be facilitated. Much published product-recovery information contains enough cubic volume data to be very useful in the transition period. The important values are product recovery factor, product recovery ratio, and relationship of product measure to cubic feet of products recovered. The paper defines and shows how to calculate and use these factors.
