Predicting Pole Classes for Longleaf Pine Based on Diameter Breast Height
A table for estimating longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) pole classes in the field is presented. The table was derived by converting the American National Standards Institute's dimensions of southern pine poles from minimum circumference at 6 ft from the butt of the pole to minimum tree diameter breast height outside bark. The conversion is based on tree taper, stump height, length trimmed off the butt of the tree at the pole yard, and bark thickness. The table is compared to a previously published table for determining southern pine pole classes from dbh. South. J. Appl. For. 16(2):79-82.
