Prism Cruising Coefficients for Appalachian Hardwoods Biomass
Abstract:Coefficients were developed to convert directly from prism-cruising tally sheets to tons of biomass per acre for Appalachian hardwood stands. It was found that 10 square feet of basal area per acre represent 12 tons per acre in the summer condition and 11 tons per acre in the winter condition. Coefficients for point cruising with diameter obviation are also presented. The D²H volume equation form was sufficient for weight estimation.
