Is BAF 10 a Good Choice for Point Sampling?
Abstract:The use of basal-area-factor (BAF)-5 and BAF-10 when point sampling in an Appalachian hardwood forest caused serious underestimation of sawtimber volume BAF's of 20 and 40 gave appropriate volume estimates and smallest mean-square errors. We recommend that BAF's 20 to 40 be used for sawtimber cruises. North. J. Appl. For. 2:23-24, June 1984.
