    Description

    Volume and weight tables were constructed from a 62-tree sample of Nuttall oak (Quercus nuttallii Palmer) taken in the Mississippi Delta. The tables present volume, green weight, and dry weight of bole wood, bole wood plus bark, and total tree above a one-foot stump as predicted from the nonlinear model Y = 0Db1Hb2. Merchantable bole volumes and weight estimates can be made to outside bark diameter limits of 2 to 12 inches in 2-inch increments. More precise bole estimates can be obtained from equations using upper bole diameters at relative heights of 25, 33, and 50 percent of total tree height.
