DescriptionTimber cruising is frequently made easier through use of local volume tables based on d.b.h. alone. These tables are made by establishing the relation between volume and d.b.h. from measurements (including height) made on sample trees in the stand. The sample-tree measurements are converted to volumes through use of standard volume tables, and a volume-diameter curve is constructed.
