Effective multi-product inventory requires methods that can estimate the percent of total tree merchantable volume in any one piece regardless of length or position. The usual equations for predicting percent volume by piece are confined to specific log lengths and length units. A simple method of predicting percent board foot volume in any piece of a bole or log in any length units is presented. It is widely applicable but not as accurate as other more specific methods. South. J. Appl. For. 27(2): 149–152.
