DescriptionThe weight, volume, and physical properties of trees 1 to 20 inches d.h.h. were determined for basswood, blackgum (upland), red maple,yellow-poplar, white oak, sweet birch, black locust, hickory, black oak, chestnut oak, northern red oak, scarlet oak, and white oak in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Hard hardwoods, soft hardwoods, and individual species equations are presented for predicting green and dry weight and green volume of the total tree above-stump and its components by using d.h.h. and total height, d.b.h. and height to a 4-inch top, d.h.h. and saw-log merchantable height, and d.b.h. alone. Average specific gravity, moisture content, and weight per cubic foot of wood, hark, and wood and hark combined are presented for each species by tree size class and component. Bark percentage is also presented for each species by tree size class and component.
