No volume tables are available for cypress in the South. A volume and stem-profile prediction system for baldcypress (Taxodium distichum) is presented in this paper. Equations for estimating total and merchantable inside- and outside-bark cubic foot volumes are discussed, as well as a stem-profile equation for estimating diameter at any point on the tree bole. These equations are based on diameters measured at 10 feet above the ground. The prediction system was developed from 157 sample trees measured on 26 locations scattered throughout the south Delta region of Louisiana. Normal diameters ranged from 6 to 24 inches and total heights ranged from 50 to 100 feet.
