Simulations based on data collected in five Appalachian hardwood sawtimber-size stands indicate double sampling using point sampling (BAF 10 and 20) compared to conventional point sampling would save 24 to 47% of time in the field. There was no significant bias in volume estimates using double sampling, and standard errors were within about 1% of those obtained with conventional point sampling. North. J. Appl. For. 13(3):116-118.
