    Description

    Foresters sometimes have to estimate the volume of timber harvested from the stumps that remain after logging. Such estimates may be needed when the timber cutters have crossed property lines or when they have removed trees not marked for cutting. Stump measurements on sample areas may also be used for state or regional estimates of the volume of timber cut annually, instead of the usual timber-production survey. In order to test this stump method of estimating volume of timber harvested, the Central States Forest Experiment Station has been tallying stumps on field sample plots for several years in statewide surveys of forest resources.
